Global Chemical Security Effectiveness Study


The Department of State’s Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation (ISN) Office of Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) is pleased to announce an open competition for assessing the effectiveness of ISN/CTR's Chemical Security Program (CSP) through this Request for Proposals (RFP). ISN/CTR invites non-profit/non-governmental organizations and educational institutions to submit proposals that will assess the effectiveness of CSP engagements with three partner countries. CSP seeks to reduce global chemical threats by preventing unauthorized access to weaponizable chemicals, weapons-applicable expertise, and/or related infrastructure. This assessment will focus on CSP's work in three countries including activities designed to engage key academic, industry, and government stakeholders. The three countries that are part of this examination represent advanced, intermediate, and introductory CSP partners, and this survey will be contacted remotely (email, phone, video teleconferencing, via local survey firms, etc), rather than through in-country visits. This analysis will provide program managers with solid empirical basis to assess CSP's effectiveness. ISN/CTR has up to $215,000 available to award one cooperative agreement in this field. While not a decisive factor, to ensure an unbiased assessment of its programming, ISN/CTR prefers proposals submitted by individuals or organizations which are not currently involved in implementing nonproliferation engagement activities on behalf of ISN/CTR.
