USAID-Funded Publications Not Properly Marked - 22 CFR 226.91

Branding and marking requirements for USAID assistance are established by 22 CFR 226.91, which requires that specific activities partially or fully funded by a USAID grant or cooperative agreement or subaward be marked appropriately with the USAID identity.

Activities financed by USAID should bear the USAID identity, including the USAID logo. The regulations further state that USAID implementing partners may request waivers from these requirements, in whole or in part, through the contracting officer.

Presumptive exceptions to the requirements include situations in which the USAID identity would compromise the intrinsic independence or neutrality of a program, such as elections monitoring or ballots, and voter information literature and political party support.

General Recommendations

  • Develop a marking and branding plan and verify that the plan has been implemented.
