Consortium for Elections & Political Process Strengthening

CEPPS is a nonprofit organization that pools the expertise of three premier international organizations – the National Democratic Institute, the International Republican Institute, and the International Foundation for Electoral Systems – to support elections and political transitions across the globe. Our mission is to work together with local, regional, and global partners to build resilient, inclusive and accountable democracies.

CEPPS was independently established in 1995 and is funded by the Global Elections and Political Transitions (GEPT) Program at USAID.

Operating as a consortium, CEPPS provides USAID and other donors with the capacity to deliver complex democracy, rights and governance (DRG) programming at scale across the world.
