GAO releases report on USAID’s efforts to provide funding directly to local organizations

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report titled “Foreign Aid: USAID Has Increased Funding to Partner-Country Organizations but Could Better Track Progress.” The report examines the implementation of the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Local Solutions initiative, a reform under USAID Forward that “aims to shift program implementation from U.S.-based and international organizations to partner-country organizations, including governments and for-profit and nonprofit organizations” and achieve three goals: strengthen local capacity, enhance and promote country ownership, and increase sustainability.
