General Procurement Notice (GPN) – MCC Lesotho CDF /

Government of Lesotho

Lesotho Millennium Development Agency

GPN 2.0

Publication Date: August 24, 2022                                                   

The United States of America, acting through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (“MCC”) and the Government of Lesotho (“GoL”) have entered into a Grant and Implementation Agreement to support the development and facilitation of a Compact. The grant is in the amount of approximately Nine Million Seven Hundred Forty Thousand U.S. Dollars ($9,740,000) (“MCC Funding”). The Government, acting through Lesotho Millennium Development Agency intends to apply parts of the proceeds of the funds to payments for contracts for goods and services.

MCC’s funding is appropriated by the U.S. Congress and obligated to the compact up-front, with no incremental or partial funding. When a contract is signed with an MCA Entity, money is already available to the MCA Entity and, for most contracts, invoices are paid directly to Contractors/Consultants/Suppliers by the US Treasury.

MCC has contracted Crown Agents to perform Procurement Agent Services on behalf of the Government of Lesotho, for the procurements to be funded by the Grant and Implementation Agreement.
