ADS 320, Branding and Marking, Section 320.3.2, requires an approved marking plan for USAID contracts. USAID programs, projects, activities, public communications, and commodities with USAID funding are required to be “branded with a standard graphic identity.”
It is also USAID policy to prohibit the use of the USAID identity on contractor and recipient business cards, although they may include such wording as “USAID Contractor” or “USAID Grantee” as appropriate on their employees’ business cards to identify that these individuals are working on a USAID-funded activity.
Require partners to implement branding plans and take the necessary steps to ensure adherence to USAID branding guidelines.
