Background:

Creative Associates International is a dynamic, fast-growing global development firm that specializes in education, economic growth, democratic institutions and stabilization. Based in Washington, D.C., Creative has a field presence in more than 25 countries with a strong client portfolio that includes the U.S. Agency for International Development and the State Department, among others. Since its founding in 1977, Creative has earned a solid reputation among its clients and is well-regarded by competitors and partners alike.

Project Summary:

USAID/Colombia’s Venezuela Response and Integration (VRI) IDIQ will help Colombia respond to the social, political, and economic disruption caused by sustained mass migration from Venezuela. VRI will increase socio-economic integration by strengthening public systems and economic opportunities in migrant receptor communities. VRI IDIQ Task Orders (TOs) will assist the Colombian Government—at the national and local levels— develop and implement a sustainable, comprehensive approach to respond effectively to the mass migration from Venezuela, as well as help the Colombian Government utilize their resources more effectively and efficiently to meet the needs of migrants and their host communities.

The initial VRI IDIQ Task Order, Migration Management, will support the national-level policy framework needed to formalize migrants, build local government capacity to meet receptor community needs, and counter xenophobia. Migration Management will help create the legislative and administrative framework and eliminate barriers to carry out subsequent VRI IDIQ TOs that strengthen economic opportunities and health and education services.

The initial Task Order will build the Colombian Government’s migration management capacity to document and track migrants and refer them to municipal level services, and to promote social integration and acceptance of migrants. This Activity requires developing plans, policies, and processes related to border management by the national government - particularly Migración Colombia, Cancillería de la República de Colombia, and Gerencia de Fronteras and related to service delivery by subnational governments – particularly municipal governments. This Activity will help create the legislative and administrative framework to carry out subsequent VRI IDIQ TOs that strengthen economic opportunities and health and education services, but will focus primarily on the governance side of improved service delivery. In order to ensure a holistic and comprehensive response to the migration crisis, this Activity will not only address enhanced documentation and service provision, but also focus on
