Six to vie for AIDSTAR tasks

Six companies have won an opportunity to compete for as much as $200 million in individual tasks over five years through the Agency for International Development's AIDS Support and Technical Assistance Resources contract.

The winners are:
  • Abt Associates, a Cambridge, Mass.-based scientific research, consulting and technical assistance company;
  • BearingPoint Inc., a McLean, Va., management and technology consulting company;
  • Booz Allen Hamilton, a McLean, Va., strategic management and technology consulting company;
  • Training Resources Group, an Arlington, Va., organizational development and training services provider;
  • Management Science for Health, a Cambridge, Mass.-based nonprofit health care policy adviser; and
  • Social Sectors Development Strategies, a Boston-based technical and educational consulting company.

AIDSTAR contracts are intended to provide state-of-the-art technical assistance and support to expand high-quality HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment services and to build in-country technical and management capacity to sustain those services.

The President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief covers 120 countries, with a special emphasis on 15 in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean, which are home to about half of HIV infections worldwide.
