This APS is USAID/Pakistan’s invitation to the private sector. The APS invites private sector to identify and suggest ways to partner for placing millions of Pakistani youth in jobs within and outside Pakistan by 2023. The APS provides USAID a means of encouraging private sector resources for activities that are developed in collaboration with the private sector.

By inviting the private sector to identify ways we can collaborate, and by encouraging other organizations to work with the private sector to do the same, the USAID Pakistan Mission seeks to foster a diverse array of results-focused, high-impact partnerships and alliances to place millions of Pakistani youth in jobs within and outside Pakistan, which is in line with its Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) priorities.

  • The following list of potential applicants is not exhaustive and is provided for illustrative purposes only. USAID welcomes partnership applications from the following types of organizations: U.S. and local private businesses, business and trade associations, private foundations, international organizations, private universities, private vocational training institutes, private Pakistani diaspora organizations, and regional organizations All applicants must be legally recognized organizations or entities under applicable law. An individual cannot apply as an applicant, unless specified.
  • In addition, for the following groups the criteria below also apply:
    • U.S. and Non-U.S. For-Profit Organizations: In accordance with 22 CFR 226.81 potential for-profit applicants should note that USAID policy prohibits the payment of fee/profit to the prime recipient under assistance instruments, and as 22 CFR 226.5 states that, unless specifically excluded, all requirements applying to recipients also apply to sub-recipients if they meet the definition of “recipients”; therefore, fee/profit under assistance type awards is also prohibited for sub-recipients. Forgone profit does not qualify as cost-sharing or leveraging. If a prime recipient has a (sub)-contract with a for-profit organization for the acquisition of goods or services (i.e., if a buyer-seller relationship is created), fee/profit for the (sub)-contractor is authorized. A for-profit local organization may still want to apply for grant funding under this APS even though it is foregoing profit on the alliance activities. As determined by the needs of the alliance and development objectives, grant funds may be used to build the capacity of the local organization, whether it is for-profit or non-profit.
    • U.S. and Non-U.S. Universities and TVET: Qualified U.S. and non-U.S. universities and TVET may apply for funding under this APS. USG and USAID regulations generally treat universities as NGOs, rather than governmental organizations. Hence, both public and private colleges and universities are eligible. Non-U.S. colleges and universities in countries that are ineligible for assistance under the Foreign Assistance Act or related appropriations acts are ineligible.

How to Apply

All applications must be in English and submitted electronically via email at the address given on the website.
