USAID Issues Statement Addressing Prospect Of Government Shutdown

USAID “has reassured contractors and grantees that a possible government shutdown on Monday is unlikely to impact their programming,” Devex reports. “In a statement issued Friday, [USAID Senior Procurement Executive Aman Djahanbani] suggested that ‘the majority’ of the agency’s grants and contracts ‘are not dependent on additional appropriations,'” the news service writes, adding, “For implementing partners that might be affected by a possible government shutdown, Djahanbani said that the appropriate USAID contracting or agreement officer would be in touch to provide additional details.” The agency published a more comprehensive “lapse plan” (.pdf) on its website on Friday (Piccio, 9/27).
