USAID Shutdown Guidance

By: Ryan Byrd

On September 27, 2013, USAID Senior Procurement Executive Aman Djahanbani issued a letter about the possible lapse in appropriations if the annual funding for the U.S. Government expires on September 30.

Mr. Djahanbani indicates that USAID’s lapse plan should be posted the afternoon of September 27. The majority of USAID contracts/grants/cooperative agreements do not depend on additional appropriations and will have required oversight. If a contract/grant/cooperative agreement is affected due to the lapse, the letter indicates that a Contracting/Agreement Officer will contact you with additional details.
