Country: Afghanistan
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: Yes
Description:

USAID/Afghanistan provides extensive support to electoral processes in Afghanistan. The IEP activity, implemented by the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening and three subawardees, is a program of approximately $60 million, with $37 million in disbursements as of June 30, 2010. It provides assistance to governmental institutions, civil society organizations, and voters.

The STEP activity, implemented by the International Foundation for Electoral Systems, is a $79 million program with $33 million in disbursements. It is designed to increase the organizational capacity of the Independent Election Commission and help the commission administer transparent election processes.

The audit will assess whether the IEP activity is strengthening the ability of political parties to translate citizen concerns into party platforms and campaigns, helping the media cover elections, and encouraging citizen participation in the election process. It will also determine whether the STEP activity is achieving institutional development of electoral institutions and supporting fair and transparent elections.
