Audit of USAID/Afghanistan’s Support for Increased Electoral Participation in Afghanistan Activity.
Fiscal Year: 2010
Audit Report Available: No
USAID/Afghanistan has been supporting programs designed to strengthen democratic governance since 2003. For elections to be seen as credible and abiding by international standards, the Afghan Government’s Independent Election Commission (IEC) must administer a transparent elections process and increase its organizational capacity. The international community plans to support the Government of Afghanistan in designing institutions and implementing programs, as opposed to performing these tasks on the Government’s behalf. Support to civil society to monitor the entire electoral process will also be necessary, as will efforts to increase awareness and understanding of the voting rights and responsibilities of Afghan citizens. In September 2008, USAID/Afghanistan awarded a $40 million cooperative agreement to the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS).
This audit will determine whether USAID’s administration of the cooperative agreement with CEPPS has strengthened local institutions in their efforts to administer a transparent election process.
