WISHH launches an RFP to Conduct a Baseline Assessment for CAST Cambodia

Jan 17, 2019

The American Soybean Association’s (ASA) World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH) program issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for conducting the baseline study under the Food for Progress (FFPr) 2018 Project funded by the United States Department for Agriculture (USDA) and implemented by the Commercialization of Aquaculture for Sustainable Trade (CAST) project in Cambodia.

CAST is a five-year USDA-funded project that was awarded in September 2018. The Baseline Study will:

  1. Provide baseline data for the project and serve as the basis for updating the yearly and life of project targets described in the project indicators
  2. Provide the benchmark for the project’s midterm and final evaluations. The study will collect quantitative and qualitative baseline data to be included in the project’s Performance Monitoring Plan (PMP) and Indicator Performance and Tracking Table (IPTT). Establishing these baseline numbers and levels will allow ASA/WISHH to eventually assess the extent to which project objectives were met.

The baseline study will be conducted between March and August 2019. For RFP details and submission process, visit
