Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS): There is a mandatory requirement for your organization to provide a DUNS number to DAI. DUNS is a system developed and regulated by Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) that assigns a unique numeric identifier, referred to as a "DUNS number" to a single business entity. Without a DUNS number, DAI cannot deem an Offeror responsible to conduct business with and therefore, DAI will not enter into a purchase order with any organization. The determination of a successful Offeror/applicant resulting from this RFP is contingent upon the winner providing a DUNS number to DAI. Offerors who fail to provide a DUNS number will not receive an award and DAI will select an alternate Offeror. All U.S. and foreign organizations which receive first-tier subcontracts/ purchase orders with a value of $25,000 and above are required to obtain a DUNS number prior to signing of the agreement. Organizations are exempt from this requirement if the gross income received from all sources in the previous tax year was under $300,000. DAI requires that Offerors sign the self-certification statement if the Offeror claims exemption for this reason. For those required to obtain a DUNS number, see Appendix G: Instructions for Obtaining a DUNS Number - DAI S Vendors, Subcontractors For those not required to obtain a DUNS number, see Appendix F: Self Certification for Exemption from DUNS Requirement VI. Evaluation of Proposals DAI will use best value determination for the award of this Purchase Order. A best value determination means that, in DAI s estimation, the selected offer will provide the greatest overall benefit to the Center for Global Development Innovation in response to the requirements stated in this RFP. DAI will use the trade-off process to make a best value determination, which means that it may be in the interest of DAI to consider award to other than the lowest priced offeror or other than the highest technically rated offeror. The evaluation factors and allocated points are presented below. Technical Proposal: The Technical Proposal will be scored and evaluated separately from the cost
4 RFP No. CDI006 proposal. Technical panel reviewers will evaluate Offeror on the following factors, consistent with the Offerors Technical Proposal. Cost will be evaluated separately. a. Technical Approach (40 points) Points for this section will be awarded based on the information presented in the technical approach. Points will be awarded to firms describing their approach to designing the workshop, facilitating co-creation and building consensus among workshop participants, and collaborating with workshop participants and sponsors in drafting the resulting concept notes. b. Relevant Experience (30 points) Points for this section will be based on information presented in Appendix E. Preference will be given to firms that have past performance in workshop design and facilitation, co-creation and/or consensus building experience, and experience working in Cambodia. c. Implementation and Management Strategy (15 points) Points for this section will be based on whether the Offeror understands the activities to be undertaken, the order in which they should occur and timeline by which they should be completed. As part of these activities the Offeror will detail its work plan and strategy for ensuring feedback loops with both USAID and workshop participants. d. Staffing (15 points) Points for this section will be based on qualification of the technical staff; professional experience in the area facilitation, co-creation, and writing, experience and past performance of proposed personnel including competence, reliability and responsiveness; percent of time allocated to project by each proposed staff. Please provide CVs. Cost Proposal: Cost will be evaluated separately from the technical approach, with due consideration for cost reasonableness and allowability consistent with US government cost principles. Evaluation for this section will be dependent upon all information presented by the Offeror in Priced Deliverable and Payment Schedule in Appendix C. DAI will consider the tradeoffs between the quality of each individual section, weighted as outlined above. A bid committee will be convened to evaluate each technical proposal, and will subsequently consider the Offerors cost proposals and determine an apparent winner. VII. Offeror s Agreement with Terms and Conditions The completion of all RFP requirements in accordance with the instructions in this RFP and submission to DAI of the technical and price proposals will constitute an offer and indicate the Offeror s agreement to the terms and conditions in this RFP and any attachments hereto. DAI reserves the right to award a subcontract without discussion and/or negotiation; however, DAI also reserves the right to conduct discussions and/or negotiations, which among other things may require an Offeror(s) to revise its proposal (technical and/or price). Issuance of this RFP in no way obligates DAI to award a subcontract, nor does it commit DAI to pay any costs incurred by the Offeror in preparing and submitting the proposal. DAI reserves the right to award a PO to one organization or to issue multiple awards to different organizations based on the results of our evaluation. Offerors may also be required to demonstrate their ability to carry out this activity and to provide proof of registration of a valid business license. VIII.

5 RFP No. CDI006 APPENDIX A STATEMENT OF WORK Scope of Work for Co-creation Facilitation Services: Family Care First Workshop in Phnom Penh, Cambodia Background USAID launched Family Care First to uncover and advance new solutions to old problems that give Cambodia s most vulnerable children who are living outside family care a fighting chance to reach their full developmental potential. Family Care First has four principal objectives, which are to significantly: Reduce the number of children living in orphanages and other residential care facilities. Reduce the number of orphanages and other residential care facilities. Increase support services to prevent child-family separation. Increase the number of children reintegrated into family-based care. USAID intends to convene select people and organizations with the best innovative and collaborative ideas, chosen through a request for Expressions of Interest. These partners will be brought together for a workshop in Phnom Penh to co-create, co-design, and possibly co-invest in actions to significantly reduce the number of children living outside of family care at a national scale in Cambodia, including children living in orphanages. Then, collectively as a group, decisions will be made on which ideas to further refine into concept notes for potential projects and partnerships. Objective We are seeking a partner to design and facilitate the co-creation workshop in collaboration with USAID and to draft the resulting concept notes in consultation with the workshop participants. We anticipant participants, although the actual number depends on the quality and quantity of Expressions of Interest submitted to USAID. Activities Under this scope of work, the Facilitation Partner will engage in the preparation, implementation and follow up of the co-creation workshop for the Family Care First initiative. The Facilitation Partner will work closely with USAID and workshop participants during all stages of this work. Preparation and design: During this stage, the Facilitation Partner will conduct background research, which could include reviewing the successful expressions of interest, desk research, and participant interviews, in order to be well versed in the program objectives, the underlying social issues on which the workshop is focused, and the breadth and depth of experience within the participant pool. This background research is meant to inform the agenda and facilitation design of the workshop so as to meet the program s objectives while engaging each of the participants in a substantive way. The Facilitation Partner will share and validate the findings from the background research with USAID. Based on the background research, the Facilitation Partner will draft an agenda, design the workshop structure and activities, propose necessary supplies and resources, propose any site visits or meetings, share recommendations on the workshop space and set-up, and create facilitation materials. This might include participant agendas, pre-reading, workshop tools, exercise templates, facilitation handbooks, participant bios, and others. Additionally, the Facilitation Partner will recommend facilitators for each session, including potential breakout sessions, from within their own organization, or from USAID and other partners as appropriate. Through the process, the Facilitation Partner will solicit input and feedback from USAID. Implementation and facilitation: The Co-Creation is expected to run for three days at the end of February The Facilitation
6 RFP No. CDI006 Partner will run the workshop, involving each of the participants and keeping the sessions fresh and engaging. This might include running breakout sessions, activities, icebreakers, group exercises, session recaps, and other participatory methods to maintain momentum, keep participants interested, the discussions productive and the outcomes meaningful. The Facilitation Partner will make a special effort to draw less-participatory, or more soft-spoken participants into dialogue and solicit their thoughts. While the Facilitation Partners should not be overly reliant on the Expressions of Interest in their facilitation, they should make an effort to reference common threads and recurrent themes in their facilitation activities. While the pre-designed agenda will drive the workshop implementation, it is envisaged that session topics and formats will be adjusted throughout based on participant feedback, facilitator/organizer observations, and prior session outcomes to ensure the event remains relevant and continues to move towards the identification of 3-5 fundable programs or activities that could be further refined and developed into concept notes. Workshop follow up and concept note creation: Following the workshop, the Facilitator will synthesize the discussions and build on the identified program ideas to draft (an anticipated) 3-5 concept notes. The Facilitation Partner will consult with the workshop participants during and after drafting of concept notes to ensure their ideas are represented and the roles of potential implementing partners are accurately depicted. Due to the Facilitator's work on drafting the concept notes, USAID and its partners may wish to engage the Facilitator in the presentation of the concept notes to the USAID Science-Peer Review Board. This will be determined during the concept note development process in collaboration with the Facilitator, USAID and its partners. The Facilitation Partner will also prepare a workshop report to document the workshop process, the event itself, thoughts on how the workshop contributed to the co-creation of new ideas, recommendations for how the agenda or facilitation could have been more effective, and recommendations for next steps to consolidate Family Care First goals. All of these products will be given a clear and compelling design (visualizations, imagery, layout, polish, etc.) that will allow them to be used effectively by USAID for stakeholder engagement and building support for continuing the work identified in the concept notes. Deliverables The following deliverables are expected from the Facilitation Partner: Kick-off Meeting with DAI and USAID teams Synthesized report on participant needs, interests and background Proposed agenda for workshop, along with facilitation guides, suggestions for venue structure (e.g., seating arrangements) and workshop materials (eg, participant bios, name tags, logistical guides, background reading, supplies lists) Workshop Report3-5 Concept papers based on identified programmatic activities and ideas (anticipated, actual number of concept notes will be determined by workshop) Potential Concept Paper Presentation to USAID Science-Peer Review Board to be determined during the Concept Note development stage. Timeframe The duration of this Scope of Work is approximately 3 months. It is expected that the Facilitation Partner will begin workshop preparation no later than the last week of January, The workshop will be held at the end of February or early March and the Facilitation Partner will use the month following to draft the concept notes, consult with the participants and finalize the deliverables. Should the Facilitator present the concept notes to the USAID Science Peer Review Board, this would take place in April.
