All work will be performed remotely through online platforms and will accommodate the time zone/working schedule of USAID/Mongolia staff. No travel to Mongolia is anticipated at this time. The project is projected to begin in March 2022 and run through August 2022, with the possibility of the work concluding earlier or later depending on mission needs.
