USAID Procurement Reform: Questions to External Partners

We hosted a special Institutional Member (IM) event as part of USAID's Listening Tour on Effective Partnering and Procurement Reform. Administrator Mark Green has shared his vision that the goal of foreign assistance should be to end the need for foreign assistance over the long term, and increase host country capacity and self reliance. As part of the effort to reach this goal, USAID is seeking your input on procurement approaches. Several members from USAID's Effective Partnering and Procurement Reform (EPPR) team had a discussion around the following questions:

1. What are the top three challenges that you see in USAID’s current program design and procurement approaches to reaching this vision, and steps to address those challenges?

2. What are promising models of program design and procurement that emphasize a field-driven focus?

3. What are promising models of program design and procurement that are more results-driven?

4. What are promising models of program design and procurement that strengthen local capacity?

5. What are promising models of program design and procurement that would allow USAID become more effective in fragile states or non-permissive environments?

6. How do you suggest that USAID better work with the private sector and leverage private-sector resources, and what are some successful examples/models the Agency should examine?
