Audit of USAID/Pakistan’s Emergency Cash-Transfer Program—University and Technical Education Component.
Fiscal Year: 2011
USAID/Pakistan signed a cash-transfer grant agreement in September 2009 with the Government of Pakistan for a $174 million emergency cash-transfer program. The program includes three separate cash transfers: (1) $44 million in budgetary support for families displaced by conflict, (2) $85 million in budgetary support for low-income families across Pakistan, and (3) $45 million in budgetary support for university and technical education in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, serving students in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas and in other vulnerable areas including southern Punjab.
The education program will also expand Pakistan’s relationships with universities in the United States. Some of the program activities developed for funding include providing facilities and equipment for science and technology programs; extending the rollout of the national nursing education program; and financing exemptions from tuition and hostel fees for all university students.
The audit will determine whether the funds provided to the Government of Pakistan under USAID/Pakistan’s Emergency Cash-Transfer Program for the university and technical education component are being used for their intended purpose.
