a.On Cover Letter, fourth paragraph, DELETE ?$2,500,000.00? and REPLACE with ?$2,400,000.00?.
b.On Page A-3, 4. Implementation Plan, DELETE ?$2.5 million dollars? and replace with ?$2.4 million dollars?.
2-Questions regarding this RFA can be submitted in writing via e-mail to Mr. Frederico Costa (email@example.com) until COB June 24, 2005. All questions will be answered through official amendments to this RFA and posted at the website www.FedGrants.gov.
3-The RFA states that applicants shall provide information that substantiates the applicant?s organizational capacity to coordinate and work collaboratively with other USAID/Brazil programs. To assist on this matter, supporting Strategy Documents have been posted at www.FedGrants.gov. Descriptions of SO 8 ? Natural Ecosystems Sustained, SO 9 ? Global Climate Change Mitigated through Market-Based Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation, SO 10 ? Access to Training and Employability Skills and Opportunities Increased for Disadvantaged Youth, and SO 11 ? Economic Opportunities for SME Growth, Trade and Poverty Reduction, are available through the supporting documents posted thereto. SO 7 ? Transmission of Selected Communicable Diseases Reduced in Target Areas strategy is under revision. Therefore, coordination with this SO 7 will not be evaluated by the Selection Committee.
4-QUESTION: The RFA emphasizes the applicants should complement and not duplicate other US Government funded activities to reduce trafficking in persons. The RFA lists several USG agencies, including DOJ, Dept Homeland Security, DOL, DOS, and HHS, who support anti-trafficking efforts. Can you please provide a list of the current implementers of all USG funds, beyond the Partners of the Americas and ILO awards cited in the RFA?
ANSWER: To date only the U.S. Department of Labor has received funds from the Presidential Initiative. To find out more about DOL?s program, contact Mr. Mark Mittelhauser, through phone (202) 693-4816 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Other agencies such as DHS, DOJ and others have not yet received funds and, hence, have not started implementing anti-TIP activities. We will require the successful applicant to present a plan to coordinate with other USG agencies, which may include periodical meetings, ongoing exchange of information, and development of common indicators, among others.
All other terms and conditions of the RFA remain unchanged.
