The State Department's bureau of democracy, human rights and labor has released a solicitation for initiatives that could help fight corruption amid response to the coronavirus pandemic.

A notice of funding opportunity posted Tuesday says the bureau wants a project that would encourage media and civil society to promote transparency and accountability of government responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The selected organization should work with a consortium of media entities, civil society groups and anti-corruption advocates across multiple countries to advance accountability and transparency in public procurement processes; strengthen government oversight systems and regional and national anti-corruption frameworks; and expand access to information and advance freedom of expression.

DRL may award a cooperative agreement or a grant worth approximately $1M depending on the program's risk factors and needs. The performance period could run between two to three years.

Responses to the solicitation are due June 12.
