Audit of USAID/Pakistan’s Firms Project.

Country: Pakistan
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: USAID
Description:

In May 2009, USAID/Pakistan signed an $89.7 million task order with Chemonics International to implement the Firms Project. This project was designed to develop a dynamic, internationally competitive business sector in Pakistan that will increase exports and employ more people, including bringing women into the economic mainstream, while also producing higher-value-added products and services.

The main objective is to strengthen Pakistan’s economy by creating a strong business sector and improving productivity and quality to promote increased sales and export. The project has three main components: strengthening the private sector, creating a pro-business environment, and providing services for business development. In implementing this project, Chemonics relies on several subcontractors and the Government of Pakistan.

This audit will determine whether USAID/Pakistan’s Firms Project is strengthening the business sector and improving productivity and quality.
