USAID Branding and Marking Requirements Are Not Being Followed - Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, Public Law 87–195, section 641 - ADS 320

According to USAID’s framework legislation, the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, Public Law 87–195, section 641, all programs under the act must be identified appropriately overseas as “American Aid.” In addition, the USAID Automated Directive System (ADS) contains USAID’s policies and required procedures on branding and marking USAID-funded programs, projects, activities, public communications, and commodities (ADS 320).

General Recommendations

  • Document compliance with requirements of USAID Automated Directive System 320, “Branding and Marking”, or submit a written request to the mission for a waiver from the requirements.
