Audit of the MCC-Funded Program in El Salvador.

Country: El Salvador
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: MCC

In November 2006, MCC and the Government of El Salvador signed a 5-year, $461 million compact to advance economic growth and reduce poverty in the Northern Zone of El Salvador.

The agreement aims to (1) increase the number of households with access to basic services such as water, sanitation, and electricity; (2) improve community infrastructure to facilitate greater access to health and education facilities as well as to jobs and markets; (3) increase the number of local people with the necessary skills to drive a growing and diversified economy; and (4) provide modern connections to link local and regional producers with national, regional, and global markets via the northern transnational highway and a proposed network of complementary feeder roads.

The MCC compact entered into force in September 2007 and will end in September 2012.

The objective of this audit will be to determine whether the three compact projects are achieving their goals, including expanding the quality and access to education, constructing water and sanitation systems, and extending electricity to rural areas. OIG will report whether the compact can serve as a model for future compact activities in other countries.
