Analytic Task on Authoritarian Resurgence and Influence (ATARI)

Through the Analytical Services IV (ASIV) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract, 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.

ATARI is an innovative DRG Center activity which is developing and piloting a new diagnostic tool for assessing resurgent authoritarian influence in USAID partner countries and working collaboratively with USAID Missions and stakeholders to formulate effective responses. The development of this tool is informed by a synthesis of the growing body of research and evidence on Chinese, Russian, and other authoritarian influence operations along with identification of knowledge and data gaps.

Ultimately ATARI will support USAID’s understanding of resurgent authoritarian influence and contribute to the development of effective DRG sector response strategies and programs.
