Analytical Services IV (ASIV) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) is intended to provide the Bureau for Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance’s Center of Excellence on Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance (DCHA/DRG) with the analytic means and resources to inform mission, bureau, and agency strategies, policies, and decision making, as well as allowing USAID missions and other operating units to source rapid response analytic support during periods of rapidly evolving political change.

Through the Analytical Services IV (ASIV) IDIQ, DPI and its joint venture partner Making Cents International, provide USAID’s DRG Center with analytical expertise for strategic assessments and program design, research activities, surveys, training, and rapid response for political transitions. These services enable USAID to be responsive to queries and requests from other USG agencies or host country institutions, and to address complex democracy, human rights and governance challenges. Support for democracy, human rights and governance is vital to the pursuit of freedom and national security, and is essential to achieve the Agency’s and the U.S. Government’s broader social and economic development goals.

The Analytical Services IV IDIQ will directly build on USAID's DRG Strategy by providing support to USAID Missions and other operating units to develop strategies and projects that will have the greatest impact, and be based on in-depth, well-informed analyses; valid data; and best practices in the field of democracy, human rights, and governance.

DPI is implementing multiple Task Orders under ASIV worth almost $30 million. More details on individual task orders can be found under Projects.
