Audit of USAID/Pakistan’s Capacity-Building Development Program
Fiscal Year: 2009
Audit Report Available: No
USAID/Pakistan awarded Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI), a contract to implement a capacity-building program to improve economic and social conditions in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) of Pakistan. The contract, awarded January 1, 2008, is valued at $43 million over a 3-year period, with an initial funding of $15 million. USAID/Pakistan’s overall FATA program will provide technical assistance and training to private and public organizations to support projects that strengthen livelihoods, expand economic opportunities, and improve basic education and health care. DAI’s program will strengthen the capacity of the Pakistani Government and nongovernmental institutions in FATA to plan, implement, and monitor programs at the regional, agency, and community levels; to improve coordination between security and development organizations; to strengthen communications; and to increase the ability of FATA-based civil society organizations to contribute to development. This program is part of the U.S. Government’s commitment to provide $750 million over 5 years to assist in FATA development.
This audit will (1) determine whether USAID/Pakistan’s capacity-building development program achieved intended results and (2) assess the program’s impact.
