Integra Awarded USAID’s Climate Integration Support Facility (CISF) BPA
Integra is pleased to announce our receiving the award of a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for services to be performed under USAID’s Climate Integration Support Facility (CISF). CISF is the Agency’s new flagship climate risk management (CRM) program designed to ensure the resiliency of USAID development activities. This five-year, multi-award contract has an overall ceiling price of $49.9 million to provide technical and advisory services to USAID Bureaus and Missions, to integrate climate risk considerations into all of their strategies, projects, and activities globally.
Under CISF, Integra is responsible for delivering targeted technical assistance through climate risk screening and assessments, with focused adaptation and mitigation planning across the full spectrum of development sectors (e.g., agriculture, livelihoods, renewables, public health, water and sanitation, urban planning). CISF will produce country, regional, and program-level climate risk profiles; trainings and facilitation for USAID staff, city planners, and other key stakeholders; and the development of tools and methodologies designed to assess potential climate risks and selection of appropriate adaptation strategies. Integra will work with E3/GCC in its role to ensure the effectiveness and consistency of CRM implementation across the agency. This will include meta analyses of best practices, development of protocols and methodologies for CRM, development of indicators and advancing the monitoring and evaluation framework, providing thought leadership that champions innovation, learning, and research to broaden understanding of CRM.
To meet the wide range of services anticipated under CISF, Integra has assembled a team of world-class partners, including Cadmus Group, DigitalGlobe, Family Health International (FHI360), Four Twenty Seven (427), Research Triangle Institute (RTI), and Training Resources Group (TRG). Together we look forward to serving USAID in this project.
