Speeches Shim

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is the world’s leading development and humanitarian assistance agency, and an important contributor to the objectives of the President’s National Security Strategy. In support of America's foreign policy, USAID leads the U.S. Government's international development efforts and disaster assistance through partnerships and investments that save lives, reduce poverty, strengthen democratic governance, and help people emerge from humanitarian crises and progress beyond assistance.

In accordance with Section 743 of Division C of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 Consolidated Appropriations Act, P.ublic Law 111-117, civilian Departments and Agencies must prepare an annual inventory of their service-contract actions to determine whether they are using the contractors’ skills in an appropriate manner.

As stated in U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum of December 19, 2011, titled, “Service Contract Inventories,” by December 30, 2018, USAID must submit a report for public disclosure on its analysis of its inventory of service contracts during Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 to determine if the Agency is using contract labor in an appropriate and effective manner. Further, the report must state whether the Agency is effectively balancing its mix of Federal employees and contractors.
