Strengthening Tenure and Resource Rights (STARR) II IDIQ Contract Mechanism Info Sheet


The STARR II IDIQ—managed by the E3/Land and Urban Office—is a $650 million, multi-faceted field support mechanism available for field Missions and other USAID Offices and Bureaus to buy in to for activities through July 2025. STARR II is designed to provide short- and long-term technical assistance to improve land tenure, property rights, and resource governance through targeted interventions or integrated activities in support of broader development objectives.

Given the cross-cutting nature of property rights and resource governance issues, Task Orders under STARR II can cover a wide variety of sectors, including: food security, economic growth, conflict mitigation and management, democracy and governance, environment and natural resource management, artisanal and small-scale mining, and key self-reliance issues, such as domestic resource mobilization and women’s economic empowerment. USAID’s Land and Urban Office in the E3 Bureau has a cross-cutting team of lawyers, economists, researchers, geospatial specialists and other technical experts available to assist missions in planning and designing activities under STARR II.
