This chapter provides guidance on how the Agency responds to incidents where staff have died or been killed while on assignment and/or working on behalf of USAID. The term “staff” includes all categories of direct-hire employees and Personal Services Contractors (PSCs) of USAID and the Office of Inspector General (OIG) including Cooperating Country Nationals (CCNs), Third Country Nationals (TCNs), and U.S. PSCs whether locally engaged or offshore. It applies to staff overseas as well as those working on behalf of USAID in the United States or in travel/transit. Portions of these policies may also apply to implementing partner (contractor or recipient) staff on a case-by-case basis, as determined by circumstances.
