United States Agency for International Development (Usaid)

By International Development Agency


Description
Excerpt: Many of USAID?s ways of doing business dramatically impact the FOIA Program. USAID implements its programs through contractors and grantees. The FOIA Team thus is called upon to process many procurement documents. Requests for assistance award documents bring with them the need to undergo the lengthy ?submitter notification? process. USAID is an international organization with some 80 overseas missions. Searches for responsive documents often involve searches in both Washington and overseas units. Often the responsive documents are in a foreign language. Some USAID missions have small staffs and are located in dangerous areas subject to periodic staff reductions or evacuations. The direct-hire staffs are Foreign Service Officers who rotate out of the Missions on a regular basis. This practice impacts the ?institutional memory? of the mission staffs. These characteristics sometimes make the location of responsive documents time-consuming or unsuccessful.
