Term Definition
Discrimination

Discrimination in marine insurance exists when a cooperating country takes actions which hinder private importers in USAID transactions from making cost, insurance and freight (c.i.f.) and cost and insurance (c, and i.). contracts with U.S. commodity suppliers, or which hinder importers in instructing such suppliers to place marine insurance with companies authorized to do business in the United States. Discrimination does not exist in either of the following situations: 1) when a cooperating country, in importing for itself, elects not to use USAID dollars for marine insurance but instead follows a policy of self-insurance or insures with non-USAID funds, or 2) when a cooperating country insures public sector procurements locally with a government-owned insurance company (USAID Automated Directives System - ADS - Chapter 322).
