Offerors that demonstrate interest and expertise providing business development support services to organizations in response to USAID solicitations will receive an RFP. CNFA will leave this Expression of Interest open through the deadline of the full solicitation, however the deadline of the solicitation will not change and Offerors are requested to comply with the solicitation deadline. It is the responsibility of Offerors to monitor the release of the full solicitation and comply with all requirements including the deadline. Issuance of this request for expressions of interest does not constitute an award commitment on the part of CNFA, nor does it commit CNFA to pay for costs incurred in the preparation and submission of an application. Expressions of Interest are submitted at the risk of the applicant; should circumstances prevent award of an agreement, all preparation and submission costs are at the applicant’s expense.
