USAID/Armenia intends to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a five year, $17-$22 million contract to implement the Enterprise Development and Market Competitiveness (EDMC) project. The project is designed to raise incomes and employment in Armenia by promoting growth in selected value chains with export potential. Focusing on the role of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), the contractor will facilitate the development of competitive enterprises and value chains by stimulating innovation, enhancing workforce skills, accelerating new enterprise formation, improving access to finance, and addressing shortcomings in the business environment. The contractor will provide technical assistance, training, and grants to assist targeted value chains in "going global," expanding sales in new and existing markets. The contractor and USAID will mobilize additional resources from other sources to accelerate growth in the selected value chains.
