From Lemma 2, an important conclusion on IQC stability analysis can be drawn: if [DELTA] satisfies several IQCs, it also satisfies all nonnegative linear combinations of IQCs.
and there exist real scalars [[alpha].sub.1 [greater than or equal to] [[alpha].sub.2] [greater than or equal to] 0, such that h(x) satisfies the IQCs defined by

"Most NGOs don't have the resources to put together a bid like that," added Sime, who said IQCs mean NGOs are not only up against other NGOs, but they're competing against for-profits as well.
Umbrella contracts such as the Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC), oftentimes in the ballpark of $100 million-plus, are far easier for USAID to implement and account for than the smaller grants.
'I believe in IQCS but I don't think it is important to most buyers; most buyers are not aware of it.'
'For really big pitches it is important [to be AMSO or IQCS or have other objective markers of quality assurance], because otherwise you don't get on their list.'
