USAID Operating Units (OUs) that are required to undertake activity design in accordance with ADS 201 must explicitly identify all construction activities performed under acquisition; assistance; government-to-government (G2G) mechanisms; or Cost-Type, Fixed Amount, and Simplified Agreements with Public International Organizations (PIOs). Affected OUs must perform and document a risk-screening of each identified and discrete construction activity by using the Construction Risk-Assessment Tool. OUs should complete the risk-screening as soon as they identify the need to include construction in an award, as early as possible in the design of the activity and must complete and file it prior to implementation of construction. OUs must update the screening throughout the life of the activity when the level of risk changes, when they take additional mitigation actions, or they perceive additional risk. For planned awards and modifications to awards, OUs also must indicate that an award will include construction in USAID’s Acquisition and Assistance (A&A) Plan System.
