Indefinite Quantity Contract

Who we are

For more than 50 years, PSI has used consumer and market insights to design innovative solutions that address the global health challenges of the day, resulting in transformative contributions to global goals related to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), HIV/AIDS, malaria and others. Our vision for the next decade is that the healthcare consumer will be at the center of healthcare systems. We seek to listen, to help inform, and to elevate consumer voices, knowing that health outcomes will be better when we design with them instead of designing for them. More quality care and control in consumers' hands will expand equitable access, improve sustainable health behaviors and outcomes, and accelerate progress towards universal health coverage (UHC).

There are over 5,000 "PSI'ers" around the world across more than 40 countries. We are a diverse, multidisciplinary group of professionals with a wide range of backgrounds and experience-all with unique skills that we bring to the critically important work that we do.

Partner with us!

As part of S&I, the Strategic Research and Learning Team is accountable for establishing and advancing an organizational learning agenda, ensuring the identification and exchange of learning and insights internally, and for the implementation, use and elevation of quality, ethical research. The SR&L team is seeking a pool of Research and Research Utilization consultants to support the organization through Indefinite Quantity Contracts (IQC) - a flexible arrangement for the provision of an indefinite amount of services within a fixed period. Individual Task Orders will be issued under the IQC which state the specific assignment, dates, and timeline.
