MFAN Co-Chairs Examine USAID’s Reorganization Proposal

Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network: Major overhaul sets up U.S. aid agency to be more effective, efficient, and accountable
MFAN Co-chairs George Ingram, Lester Munson, and Tessie San Martin discuss USAID’s current reorganization proposal. The co-chairs write, “The U.S. Agency for International Development’s current reorganization proposal appears to meet four of the five structural requirements included in the widely endorsed recommendations [made by the international affairs community]. These include: 1. Maintaining USAID as an independent lead aid agency … 2. Strengthening USAID’s policy, planning, and budget authority … 3. Improving USAID’s accountability, transparency, and efficiency … 4. Focusing on approaches to development goals” (10/9).
