USAID Branding Requirements not Followed - ADS 320 - 22 U.S.C. § 2401

Section 641 of USAID's framework legislation, the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended, codified at 22 U.S.C. § 2401 requires that all programs under the Foreign Assistance Act be identified appropriately overseas as "American Aid."

To help ensure compliance with this requirement, ADS 320, Branding and Marking, contains USAID’s policy directives and required procedures for branding and marking USAID-funded programs, projects, activities, public communications, and commodities.

Contracts and subcontracts exclusively funded by USAID, must use the USAID identity for branding and marking purposes. Where applicable, a host-country symbol or ministry logo or another U.S. Government logo may be added.

General Recommendations

  • Develop and implement a plan for monitoring the implementation of the branding and marking plan in compliance with USAID branding requirements.
