The Millennium Challenge Account – Jordan (MCA-Jordan) is a limited liability company owned by the Government of Jordan. The company was established in June 2010 to manage and implement the $275.1 million grant agreement funded by the US Government’s Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to help facilitate poverty reduction through economic growth. The grant is channeled to support several water and wastewater projects in Zarqa Governorate, one of Jordan’s poorest and most urbanized areas, over 5 years of the agreement (2011-2016).

The contracts will be offered through single step procurement including post qualification. The tax exempted contracts will be open to all contractors, whether international or local firms, except government owned companies and/or restricted companies by law or policy of the United States.
