The Millennium Challenge Corporation and UNOPS sign new agreement

UNOPS Executive Director Grete Faremo and Millennium Challenge Corporation Acting CEO Jonathan Nash marked a new compact agreement that will support large infrastructure projects.

“This new agreement builds on successful collaboration between our two organizations, including in Niger and Zambia,” said Ms. Faremo. “We look forward to growing this partnership together, and in providing key strategic support services for the Millennium Challenge Corporation.”

The Millennium Challenge Corporation is an independent U.S. foreign aid agency that is helping lead the fight against global poverty. Partner countries set up a local Millennium Challenge Account, responsible for compact implementation — large, five-year grants for selected countries.  

UNOPS will support at least four compacts with consulting services, which include programme or project management, risk management, contract management, and contingency management.
