Audit of USAID/Colombia’s Alternative Development Program

Country: Colombia
Fiscal Year: 2009
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: Yes

Alternative development plays a critical role in the counternarcotics strategy being pursued by the U.S. Government and the Government of Colombia. Alternative development programs are intended to improve social and economic conditions in illicit-crop-producing areas, thereby enabling small producers to voluntarily abandon illicit crop production. USAID/Colombia’s alternative development program is carried out under conditions of great insecurity.

Armed guerrilla and paramilitary groups control many areas where the alternative development program is active, and limited physical security continues to be the most significant obstacle to program implementation. The current 5-year program is implemented primarily through two contracts with Associates in Rural Development, totaling $350 million.

The audit will (1) follow up on the 10 recommendations from a previous OIG audit, (2) determine whether the program is achieving intended results, and (3) assess the program’s impact.
