FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI), a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, has won a re-compete agreement – as part of a consortium led by the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina – to support the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) MEASURE Evaluation Phase IV program. The agreement has a value to ICF of $18 million and a term of 5 years.
Through this program, USAID’s goal is to strengthen health information systems in developing countries in order to generate high quality health information that is used for decision making at the local, national and global levels. ICF will work in the areas of strengthening national capacity to manage health information systems, strengthening local capacity to monitor and evaluate malaria and other health programs, and incorporating information and communication technology in these efforts.
“We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Carolina Population Center to assist USAID in not only improving health information systems, but also in building the overall monitoring and evaluation capacities of its priority country partners,” said Leo Ryan, senior vice president for ICF International.
MEASURE Evaluation Phase IV follows another re-compete win earlier this year by ICF as part of the consortium implementing USAID’s Maternal and Child Survival Program, which is led by Jhpiego, an international health, nonprofit organization and affiliate of Johns Hopkins University. ICF will provide technical assistance in evaluation strengthening and learning and knowledge management for 23 grantees funded through USAID’s Child Survival and Health Grant Programs. ICF also will provide leadership of the project’s Community Health and Civil Society Engagement Team, and coordinate the program’s ehealth efforts. This agreement has a value of $8.2 million over five years.
