Resonance to Support USAID and US Department of State to Counter Extremism and Enhance Citizen Security

Resonance is pleased to announce that we have been awarded three new contracts to provide analytical and capacity building support for both USAID and the Department of State (DOS) programs in Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) and strengthening citizen security.

Under the USAID CVE-III project, Resonance will continue to support the Agency’s Africa Bureau by providing training, capacity building and analytical capabilities for USAID Missions, as well as host governments, implementers and other partners across the subcontinent. This project expands upon Resonance’s previous CVE work with the Africa Bureau.

Through its’ new Phased Evaluation Services for the DOS Bureau of Counterterrorism and CVE (CT) Counterterrorism Partnership Fund Programming (CTPF) activity, Resonance will provide critical analytical and evaluation support, leveraging our expertise in CVE programming and our experience in evaluating complex security-related programs across Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. The Center for Naval Analyses (CNA) will serve as a subcontractor to Resonance.

Additionally, Resonance has been awarded the new Performance Management and Evaluation Services (PMES) contract through the DOS.  PMES is a 5-year $75-million-dollar indefinite quantity, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract that provides analytical and evaluation services in the areas of civilian security, rights and stability. The subcontractors under PMES are the Center for Naval Analyses, Navanti Group, and Management Systems International (MSI).

According to Resonance’s Director of Secure Communities, Carrie Conway, “Resonance is simply thrilled to have the opportunity to expand our work with USAID and DOS through these important engagements.  Through our analytical, evaluation, training and facilitation support efforts, we will better equip diplomats, development professionals, host government officials and civil society leaders to enhance the security of citizens and prevent violent extremism.”
