Effective Partnering and Procurement Reform (EPPR) Recommendations

Speeches Shim

Over the past year and a half, the Transformation Task Team (T3) has led an effort to improve USAID’s Acquisition and Assistance process through building better partnerships and reforming our design, procurement, and implementation practices. The process began by consulting with hundreds of USAID employees and external stakeholders, culminating in an External Listening Tour report. Through a consultative workstream process, the team developed over 170+ recommendations aligned to the five guiding principles found in the Agency’s first Acquisition and Assistance (A&A) Strategy, which was released in December 2018.

Using feedback from Agency leadership, employees, and stakeholders, the team has developed a categorized list of recommendations that set the course for operationalizing the A&A Strategy. The recommendations have been consolidated, improved, and reformed through the feedback process. During this process, we have prioritized all of the recommendations and agreed to prioritize and Fast Track a handful of recommendations that can be implemented quickly. While some remain similar to their original text and intent, we have significantly consolidated and edited others to match the feedback we received.
