Across West Africa, Dexis collaborates with USAID, the Department of State, the CDC, and the Department of Defense, as well as with host country governments and militaries. Dexis’ projects have previously focused on agriculture, stabilization and conflict mitigation, security sector reform, and monitoring, evaluation, and learning.
Dexis holds active business registrations in Liberia and Mali and has active long-term presence in Mali and Côte d’Ivoire. In Côte d’Ivoire, we support the CDC under the International Technical, Operational and Professional Support Services (ITOPSS) IDIQ, providing two global health professionals embedded at the CDC Côte d’Ivoire office.
In Mali, we are working with USAID to strengthen the rule of law, combat corruption, and support the Ministry of Justice’s Emergency Reform Plan through activities that enhance justice sector capacity, support youth and community beneficiaries to access justice, and facilitate the reduction of corruption along key trade corridors. This is the largest support mechanism for the Ministry of Justice and is recognized by the U.S. Presidential Security Governance Initiative.
With a long-term presence in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and Tanzania, Dexis supports US government projects in the areas of stabilization, governance, and local capacity strengthening. Collaborating with USAID, the State Department, and the Department of Defense, as well as with host country governments, affiliated militaries, and local communities, Dexis has fielded personnel and staff in all of the 11 regional countries.
Dexis has experience conducting field assessments in countering violent extremism and counterterrorism in Somalia, supporting USAID’s reading program design and development in Rwanda, and evaluating USAID’s humanitarian response effort in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). In Kenya, Dexis provides organizational development and capacity building technical assistance to strengthen the role and capabilities of local development organizations, with the goal of fostering locally led and sustainable development programs. In Ethiopia, Dexis collaborated with local universities to identify, counter, and reduce inflammatory and dangerous hate speech. Dexis staff support the CDC in Tanzania, the Tanzanian Ministry of Heath, and the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) interagency team to improve health outcomes.
USAID’s programs in Southern Africa have a broad range of objectives, including contending with the HIV/AIDS epidemic, supporting democratic processes, fighting climate change, integrating trade, and cross-cutting development projects that range from professional services support to monitoring and evaluation. For the USAID/Southern Africa Mission Support contract, Dexis provides services to support the region’s Missions and offices, including the Power Africa Office in the areas of program support, administration, financial management, and acquisition and assistance services to ensure USAID’s continuing ability to successfully implement its assistance activities. Dexis has also worked in Zambia, Mozambique, Namibia, and Malawi during assignments under the Global Health Program Cycle Improvement Project, completing a total of 126 short-term scopes of work in those countries alone.
