This is a pre-solicitation notice of a proposed contract action in accordance with FAR Subpart 5.201 (b) (1) (ii), as supplemented information included in this notice.

2)    change KIM's sector focus on "clean energy" with "energy" in alignment with Power Africa's 2.0 Strategy;

3)    expand the scope of KIM's enabling environment component to include a new focus on increasing transparency and competition within the Kenyan financial sector to mitigate against cartels and;

4)    expand KIM's geographic scope from Kenya to the East Africa region. These changes are needed to enhance USAID/KEA's responsiveness to the new priorities in USAID's Policy Framework of 2019 and the Mission's ability to advance the Journey to Self-Reliance (J2SR) and Prosper Africa.
