SWIFT is a five-year agreement with a potential of up to $2.5 billion. The contract will help advance peace and democracy in countries that are in transition. This is the fourth iteration of the SWIFT contract.

Through SWIFT, USAID is able to provide fast, short-term assistance to countries.  The program focuses on political transition and stabilization needs. Partners rapidly deploy initial start-up teams to countries in order to set up offices; hire local staff; develop, award, and administer small grants, primarily to local groups based on USAID guidance; and implement other activities to meet critical short-term needs in political and/or post-conflict transitions.

The nine SWIFT partners, which are all U.S. based companies, are: AECOM, Casals and Associates, Chemonics International, Creative Associates International, DAI, International Relief and Development (IRD), International Resources Group (IRG)/Engility, Management Systems International (MSI), and RTI International.

SWIFT supports a hands-on management and monitoring structure where USAID has daily oversight with implementing partners. Since it’s creation in 1994, SWIFT has helped USAID implement 25,000 activities in 40 countries worldwide, according to USAID.
