This is the perfect proposal tool to get the early jump on drafting technical and cost proposals. Did you know on September 13, 2019 USAID posted with no advance notice the new Contractor Employee Biographical Data Sheet Form AID 1420-17 removing salary history for proposed employees and consultants. With this significant change, implementers will now need to quickly develop or find salary market surveys covering countries and positions where they are working or plan to work. This product removes the confusion over developing local staff employment agreements and effects of host government labor law, benefits, severance, close-out and termination. With more accurate budgeting of the local labor, benefits, travel, lodging and meals and incidental expenses (MI&E), organizations can make the government evaluators consider cost as a significant factor in the award process.
