This chapter contains the policy directives and required procedures for partner vetting (vetting) at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). USAID conducts screening to ensure that American taxpayer funds and the activities we finance do not provide support, purposefully or inadvertently, to entities or individuals that pose a risk to our national security. Partner vetting is an enhanced risk-mitigation measure USAID employs that takes a targeted, risk-based approach and involves the use of public and non-public information to determine a contractor’s or recipient’s eligibility for an award. The vetting covers the directors, officers, or other employees of non-Federal entities and for-profit entities that apply for contracts, grants, cooperative agreements, or other funding from USAID.
