To support evidence-informed planning, HP+ worked with USAID and PEPFAR in seven African countries to map local organizations and conduct assessments of readiness to directly receive USAID funds. Assessment teams used surveys, desk review, discussion guides, and adaptations of an existing USAID tool, the Organizational Capacity Assessment with items from the Non-U.S. Organization Pre-Award Survey (OCA/NUPAS), to capture information and surface potential new local partners for direct awards. These efforts informed USAID and PEPFAR plans in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eswatini, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, and Tanzania. This report provides an overview of the local organization assessment activities, focusing on approaches and lessons across country experiences.
