USAID Operating Budget ‘Could Get Rocky’ Beyond 2014, Devex Reports

Devex: USAID looks ahead to uncertain operating budget
“The U.S. Agency for International Development will ‘exhaust’ this year any carryover funding it has to help offset operating expenses budget cuts included in the fiscal year 2014 omnibus bill, according to an agency official. That means things could get rocky in 2015 — if funding for Afghanistan continues to scale back and Congress decides the current operating budget is USAID’s new normal. USAID’s operating expenses budget took a hit this year, and agency planners are still trying to figure out what it means for the agency’s ability to pay salaries, hire new staff and fund the administrative costs of managing programs at headquarters and country missions beyond fiscal year 2014…” (Igoe, 2/10).
