Millennium Challenge Corporation Highlights Business Opportunities, Streamlines Web-Based Procurement Information
Washington, D.C. The Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) has launched a new procurement webpage focused on streamlining information about MCC business opportunities at http://www.mcc.gov/procurement/. The new webpage provides direct links to MCCs compact program procurements, threshold program procurements and corporate procurements. The webpage also enables users to obtain up-to-date information about compact program procurements via an RSS feed and includes an in-depth video and downloadable podcast presentation on the full range of MCCs various business opportunities. These improvements complement MCCs recently remodeled homepage, on which lists of current procurement notices now appear front and center.
MCCs compact program procurements are issued by implementing entities in its partner countries. These implementing entities are still required to post procurement opportunities to dgMarket, at mcc.dgMarket.com, and United Nations Development Business, at www.devbusiness.com. The expanded MCC procurement webpage clarifies the compact procurement process and provides direct links to the dgMarket and United Nations Development Business sites.
Most of MCCs threshold program and corporate procurement opportunities are posted to the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) web site at www.fbo.gov. To help identify MCC threshold program procurements, which are primarily implemented by other federal agencies, and MCC corporate procurements, the new webpage has the capacity to resourcefully search listings of both types of procurement opportunities.
For each of its signed compact and threshold agreements, MCC offers the chance to work with countries motivated to improve the lives of their citizens through projects that promote sustainable economic growth. As a policy, MCC encourages a competitive, efficient, fair, and transparent process for the awarding of all contracts and program procurements.
