The BEPS activity
operates through both core funds and buy-ins and has a five-year
spending ceiling of $65 million.
A limited amount of BEPS project funds are available for
policy appraisals and assessments, technical training workshops,
conferences, workshops, and the design and implementation
of small-scale pilot projects, feasibility studies, applied
research studies, workshops, and evaluations. Requests
for assistance will be accepted through February 3, 2006.
Through BEPS, missions and regional bureaus can channel their
own available funds towards locally-designed activities
in basic education and policy support. Buy-in funding may
require securing a Modified Acquisition and Assistance
Request Document (MAARD). Pending funding availability,
each request will be considered based on its capacity to
contribute to USAID strategic support objectives and each
Mission’s strategic objectives.
