GPTech Awarded USAID Task Order to Support Power Africa Communications

Posted on August 2, 2019 · Posted in Announcements, Projects

Green Powered Technology (GPTech) has partnered with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to support communications and outreach for the U.S. Government-led Power Africa program, which is coordinated by USAID.

The partnership is part of the U.S. Government’s commitment to growing small businesses in the U.S. by awarding companies such as GPTech significant contracts that will strengthen the U.S. economy while stimulating investment in Africa.

“GPTech has a successful track record with other U.S. government contracts, and this opportunity allows us to increase our footprint in Africa while showcasing GPTech’s mission of providing clean, renewable energy that progresses humanity while protecting our environment,” said, GPTech’s President and CEO, Phillip Green.

The five-year contract, which began in August 2019, will see GPTech provide a wide range of communications services, including internal and public-facing materials that will demonstrate the benefits of improved energy infrastructure and access in sub-Saharan Africa. To ensure continuity in communications across the Power Africa program, GPTech subcontracted Tetra Tech, who have been Power Africa’s implementing partners since the inception of the program.

“Our aim with this contract is to promote Power Africa’s many successes with audiences in sub-Saharan Africa as well as the United States.”

This collaboration is GPTech’s second project with Power Africa. In October 2018, GPTech joined hands with USAID as an implementing partner to promote energy access in the Rwamwanja and Kiryandongo refugee settlements based in Uganda.
