Under the USAID Encouraging Global Anti-Corruption and Good Governance Efforts (ENGAGE) indefinite quantity contract, QED manages and implements the Development Credit Authority Financial Sector Strengthening and Support Activity to provide support to USAID’s Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment (E3).

Program activities include conducting market analyses; conducting risk management assessments; performing financial feasibility and viability analyses; providing credit modeling support; preparing subsidy estimates; providing portfolio monitoring support and advisory services; and conducting financial institution training. QED continues to work with DCA through a GSA subcontract, providing similar staffing and technical support services.  QED has provided three long term staff in Washington and two short term supporting DCA activities in Cambodia.
