The Safe Migration in Central Asia (SMICA) project aims to strengthen the ability of Central Asia (CA) to promote safe migration and reduce trafficking in persons (TIP). SMICA builds on previous United States Agency for International Development (USAID) counter trafficking in persons (CTIP) activities in CA and establishes close coordination with other U.S. Government (USG) programming to leverage additional resources, magnify impact and avoid overlap. The project collaborates with national, regional, and international experts and organizations to strengthen bilateral and multi-country strategies and actions to promote rights-based migration and counter TIP; reduce vulnerability of at-risk populations to all forms of TIP; and expand and improve identification and assistance to trafficked persons.

Qualified firms are those that have been involved in similar projects in the past, particularly within the last three (3) years. Any changes to the terms of reference will be reflected on this website; if deemed necessary by Winrock, the deadline for submission will be extended.
