The United States of America, through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), and the Government of Belize (The Government) or (GoB), have signed a Compact Development Funding (CDF) Agreement to help facilitate in the development and implementation of an MCC Compact with Belize (The Agreement) in the amount of approximately US$10 million (MCC Funding).

As a first step in the development of a compact with the Government of Belize, MCC conducted a constraints analysis in early 2022. Of the five identified constraints, the Government of Belize selected the low quality of education and the high cost of electricity constraints for further development. MCC and the Government of Belize’s Compact Development Team are now conducting an analysis to explore the root causes of these constraints.

The Government, acting through the Compact Development Team (CDT) of the Ministry of Economic Development, is hereby issuing a Request for Proposals, following the General Procurement Notice published on April 28, 2023, in DgMarket and UNDB, among other sites.

The CDT invites proposals to provide consulting services for the Belize Quality of Education Assessment and Project Design Support.
