The financial institution used by the U.S. government to push private funds toward global projects that benefit U.S. foreign policy is conducting a PR search with an RFP process open through late August.

The Overseas Private Investment Corporation, an "independent" entity of the federal government based in Washington, D.C., recently completed a "messaging and branding exercise" and is now looking for agency help for work like website writing and development, social media/blog help, media relations and media training.

An RFP issued in July carries an Aug. 29 deadline, extended today from its initial July 29 due date.

There is no incumbent.

OPIC's operations are self-sustaining at no net cost to U.S. taxpayers, according to the agency. OPIC in July approved $500M in financing for small businesses in Egypt in Jordan, part of a partnership with USAID.
