LINC Awarded the USAID/PPL Local Evaluation and Evidence Support (LEES) Activity

LINC has been awarded the four-year, $5.1 million USAID Bureau of Policy, Planning, and Learning’s (USAID/PPL) Local Evaluation and Evidence Support (LEES) Activity under the Evaluation, Monitoring, and Learning Services (EVAL ME II) IDIQ.

LEES is an exciting opportunity that merges USAID’s localization goals with its strong emphasis on monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL).

The purpose of LEES is to identify networks of host country research and evaluation firms that USAID, other international organizations, and local government can engage for evaluation and learning activities; strengthen their technical and organizational capacity; help them market their services to potential clients; and support them as they begin to conduct evaluations and learning activities.

The first two years of the project will focus on four to six countries in Africa, while the last two years will have a global focus.

“We are excited to have been selected for this activity.” Said LINC’s CEO Patrick Lohmeyer. “Two of LINC’s strongest corporate attributes are our expertise in localization and MEL, and LEES will help advance both elements. Building on our previous Local Organizations Market Research Activity, LEES will allow us to apply our expertise in localization, building sustainable networks and communities of practice, and supporting host country research and evaluation partners,” Mr. Lohmeyer continued. “We look forward to working with PPL and Missions worldwide to strengthen the ecosystem of host country partners that USAID and other clients can engage for their important evaluative and learning activities.”

The LEES Activity will be implemented by LINC and its partners The Cloudburst Group,  DevLab@Penn, and Kenyan research organization, Infotrak.

This activity is made possible by the support of the American People through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
