Grant aid is a form of assistance whereby funds required for the procurement of goods, equipment, and services are provided to developing countries without a repayment obligation.

In operations related to grant aid, JICS carries out procurement services, which include funds management, and project management, as an agent of the governments of recipient countries. We call these services “procurement agent services.”

JICS also conducts studies to examine the appropriateness of applications by recipient-country governments, and to consider the price and specifications of goods and equipment, and performs procurement consulting services to assist procurement procedures carried out by recipient-country governments, project application analysis, and report screening services.
