Audit of USAID/Yemen’s Implementation of Executive Order 13224.
Fiscal Year: 2011
Following the events of September 11, 2001, President Bush issued Executive Order 13224 authorizing the U.S. Government to block the assets of individuals and entities that provide support, services, or assistance to, or otherwise associate with, terrorists and terrorist organizations designated under the order, as well as their subsidiaries, front organizations, agents, and associates.
To implement Executive Order 13224, USAID issued acquisition and assistance policy directives requiring USAID’s contracting officers to ensure that USAID contractors and recipients are aware of the executive order before they receive an award of a grant or cooperative agreement. Contracting officers must also obtain certification from U.S. and non-U.S. NGOs that the organization does not support terrorism. Several USAID missions in the Asia Near East or Middle East Bureaus are not required by law to vet USAID recipients.
However, a mission can mitigate the risk that it may inadvertently provide material support and financing to terrorist individuals or organizations by developing mission orders to implement the executive order.
This audit will determine whether USAID/Yemen’s implementation of Executive Order 13224 has prevented USAID funding from being provided inadvertently to terrorists and terrorist organizations.
