US Selects Contractor to Support African Healthcare Project
By Steve Peacock, U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor
The Obama Administration's billion-dollar global healthcare endeavor continued to unfold this week with the awarding of a $20 million support-services contract (Award #AID-OAA-C-11-00161). The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) gave the contract to Cambridge, Mass.-based Management Science for Health, or MSH, which will be tasked with identifying "policy and implementation constraints as well as potential hurdles to related investments across Africa.
The African Strategies for Health initiative (Solicitation #M-OAA-GRO-EGAS-11-0001), as it is known, is a separate but corollary segment of the Administration's international healthcare program, which USAID is dividing into three primary projects.
As U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor previously reported (Monitor; May 6, 2011), the largest of the three packages is the $500 million plan for Africa. The Asia/Middle East plan will receive $300 million, while $100 million is slated for programs in Latin America and The Caribbean . Likewise, there is an estimated $60 million component of the global strategy strictly for communications and IT, which includes the crafting and dissemination of media messages on behalf of local governments to promote "healthy behaviors."
Speaking of big government contractors; when did the 0bummer administration fire the evil Halliburton? I missed that announcement. LMAO
Sounds like a $1B refresher course in “How to wash your genitals”.
For those who missed the genital washing “stimulus spending” the first time.
Generally, multi-year contracts have a base year and then option years so as to protect the government's interests (i.e., the governmay may or may not exercise an option year depending on the contractor's performance or changing government needs). This contract is five years of guaranteed work. A real gravy train.
They can just show them this film
Spend and tax.
Our government is insane and spending like a drunken you know what.
Where is the GOP???
Hows the African American healthcare system doing in this country zero
