The USAID Business Forecast provides information about potential funding and partnership opportunities at USAID and offers partners the opportunity to engage with us early in the procurement process. The Business Forecast includes anticipated activities that are still in the planning phase, so the information in it may change over time. 

The Agency hosts a quarterly Business Forecast and Partner Update webinar to allow partners the opportunity to ask questions about current items on the Forecast, as well as hear about Agency priorities from senior leaders across USAID.
