Review of USAID/Afghanistan’s Contracts and Cooperative Agreements.
Fiscal Year: 2012
Audit Report Available: No
Description: USAID expenditures for projects in Afghanistan have been the largest in USAID’s 50–year history, with an FY 2011 budget alone of $2.1 billion. The mission manages one of the most complex development portfolios in one of the most demanding environments in the world; this portfolio includes a broad range of programs in infrastructure, education, health, capacity building, agriculture, economic growth, democracy and governance, and the empowerment of women. Since the mission opened, it has issued approximately 291 awards totaling approximately $11.7 billion. Given the value of the mission’s open contracts, it is critical that contracts and cooperative agreements contain appropriate clauses to ensure that all U.S. Government regulations are followed. Not only do the requisite clauses assist USAID/Afghanistan in monitoring implementation of programs covered by these awards, but competitive bidding helps USAID to get the best value for its investments. This review will determine (1) whether USAID/Afghanistan’s open contracts and cooperative agreements contain required clauses and (2) whether waivers were obtained for noncompetitive awards.
