Arlington, Virginia―On January 24, 2008, USAID awarded the DAI/Nathan Group the Worldwide Support for Trade Capacity Building task order under the Global Business, Trade, and Investment (GBTI II) indefinite quantity contract. Known as TCBoost, the task order will support USAID in extending the benefits of globalization deeply and broadly throughout the developing world.

The DAI/Nathan Group, a joint venture of Nathan Associates Inc. and Development Alternatives, Inc., will provide USAID/Washington and USAID regional and country missions expert help in assessing and prioritizing trade capacity needs and in designing and implementing a wide variety of trade-related projects, such as customs reform, export diversification and competitiveness, trade policy reform, trade facilitation, and trade-related labor market adjustment. DNG is deeply experienced in helping developing countries—as producers, service providers, traders, and investment hosts—cope with and benefit from globalization.

Nathan, the lead firm for TCBoost, will collaborate with DAI and members of the DNG consortium, including Associates in International Resources and Development (AIRD), Development & Training Services (dTS), Sandler Travis Trade Advisory Services (STTAS), and the QED Group, LLC. Nathan has managed similar programs, including the highly successful Support for Trade Capacity Building Activities and Support for Trade Capacity Building Bridge, which together ran from 2001 to 2007.

Nathan’s Lisa Yarmoshuk will direct TCBoost. An accomplished strategist and lawyer with more than 15 years of experience in international trade law, policy reform, and capacity building, Ms. Yarmoshuk has managed large-scale, multidonor, regional projects, including USAID’s Trade Facilitation and Capacity Building Project in the Southern Africa Global Competitiveness Hub, for which she served as COP from 2004-2006. She will be supported by Bruce Bolnick, Nathan’s Chief International Economist, who is well known for his innovative, insightful analyses; Robert Holler, a 23-year veteran of the US Customs Service with an outstanding reputation in trade facilitation and best practices; and DNG’s deep roster of TCB experts.
