U.S. Government Infrastructure Export Tools

This toolkit identifies federal government tools to support American companies as they compete for infrastructure projects abroad, including where they can be applied along the project life cycle. Foreign governments and U.S. companies should use this as a general guide to learn how the U.S. government can support individual projects.

About ITAN

ITAN has three core functions:

1) strengthening capacity-building programs to improve partner countries project evaluation processes, regulatory and procurement environments, and project preparation capacity;

2) providing transaction advisory services to support sustainable infrastructure; and

3) coordinating U.S. assistance support for infrastructure and catalyzing private-sector-led investment throughout the region.

  • Capacity-Building Programs: The United States is creating new programs and expanding existing efforts to assist our partners to effectively plan for, and pursue, their infrastructure needs.
  • Transaction Advisory Services: The United States established a Transaction Advisory Fund (TAF), which will provide transaction advisory services, including assistance on contract negotiation and bid or proposal evaluation. The TAF will be operational in the second half of 2019. Contact TAF@state.gov with questions.
  • Interagency Coordination: The newly established Global Infrastructure Coordinating Committee (GICC) coordinates the efforts of the Departments of State, Commerce, Treasury, Energy and Transportation, and USAID, USTDA, OPIC/DFC, ExIm and other agencies to catalyze private sector investments around the world, and the deployment of U.S. government technical assistance and development finance tools including project preparation services and commercial advocacy.
