GAO Report Examines Goals, Alignment Of Foreign Assistance Strategies Among 6 U.S. Agencies

U.S. Government Accountability Office: Foreign Assistance: Better Guidance for Strategy Development Could Help Agencies Align Their Efforts
The GAO report summary states, “We looked at 52 strategies used by the six agencies that provide most foreign assistance and found they had well-defined goals. However, they did not always address how agencies will cooperate and measure progress toward those goals. Also, the strategies’ relationships to each other were sometimes unclear. We recommended that the Department of State lead an interagency effort to establish guidance for developing foreign assistance strategies” (7/12).
