USAID is increasingly being called upon to implement stabilization, development, and reconstruction programs in countries and regions identified by the Department of State, Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) as High Threat Posts (HTPs), as well as other countries and regions with challenging operating environments. In these areas, the need for a consistent and appropriate level of safety and security support for the Agency’s Implementing Partners (IPs) is critical. To address this need, USAID Missions, in consultation with Chiefs of Missions, should consider the establishment of a Partner Liaison Security Office (PLSO).
