The Consortium for Global Development is a group of non-profit and for-profit entities that guides development projects through all stages of the project cycle. The Consortium works with funders of international development projects to fully understanding their detailed funding guidelines, so that when project clients present us with their development needs, we are able to help design the best project to meet their goals while meeting funder’s requirements. Through our innovative PDI Process, The Consortium prequalifies vendors and service providers for competitive, no-bid procurement after stringent due diligence. Competitive, no-bid procurement saves funders time and money by avoiding the time consuming request for proposal process.
We help funders of development projects by:
The Consortium’s Projects
The Consortium develops exclusively projects that have a significant social, economic or humanitarian impact on the local community. Project clients are involved in every step of their project and The Consortium gives the client the tools and information to make all key decisions, which allows for local stakeholder control, ownership of the project, and enhanced long-term sustainability. One element that makes the PDI Process unique is being able to offer competitive, no-bid procurement, which drastically cuts a project’s timeframe and allows a project client to participate in choosing companies for procurement. The PDI Process saves time and money for project clients, development funders, technology companies, and businesses that supply goods and services to development projects.
The PDI Process assists clients in achieving their own objectives, while simultaneously addressing their country’s objectives related to the UN Millennium Development Goals, US Millennium Challenge Account, and the World Bank Comprehensive Development Framework. The Consortium plays a coordinating facilitator role that guarantees an equitable balance and protection of all stakeholder interests, as the cornerstone of successful multilateral relations. The PDI Process supports the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Paris Declaration, which promotes partnerships that improve transparency and accountability of development resources. A fundamental tenet of the Paris Declaration—that aid is more effective when host country partners exercise strong and effective leadership over their development policies and strategies—is a hallmark of the PDI Process.
