Technical Representative Requirements - ADS 458.3.5.5 - ADS 303.3.14

USAID has documented requirements for its technical representatives in guidance in two ADS sections. ADS 458.3.5.5, Federal Acquisition Certification Programs, requires a technical representative to complete mandatory acquisition and assistance courses for certification within 6 months of being appointed as a technical representative.

In addition, ADS 303.3.14, Designation of the Agreement Officer’s Technical Representative, requires the agreement officer to use a designation letter to define the scope of the technical representative’s responsibilities. The designation letters authorize technical and administrative oversight of an award that includes monitoring, verifying, and recommending changes to the agreement, as well as administratively approving financial payments of USAID funds, if required.

If a technical representative cannot fulfill his or her responsibilities, the representative should notify the agreement officer to ensure the timely designation of a successor.
