USAID’s Marking Requirement Is Not Being Followed - ADS 320.3

According to USAID Automated Directives System 320.3.2.4b, “Marking Requirements for Specific Contract Deliverables,” programs, projects, or activity sites financed by USAID contracts that are physical in nature must prominently display the USAID identity, including the USAID logo.

The regulations further state that USAID contractors may request waivers from the Marking Plan, in whole or in part, through the contracting officer. Exceptions to contract marking requirements include situations in which the USAID identity would compromise the intrinsic independence or neutrality of a program, such as independent media.

General Recommendations

  • Require the implementing partner to mark [the center] with the USAID logo or submit a written request to the mission for a waiver.
