38 Implementation of Uniform Requirements (OMB Super- circular) June 26 USAID forwarded its draft implementation of the OMB’s Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements (“Uniform Requirements”) to OMB for review. The Agency intends to codify the Uniform Requirements at a new Code of Federal Regulations part: 2 CFR Part 700 The new regulation improves on current policy by: –Eliminating duplicative and conflicting guidance; –Focusing on performance over compliance for accountability; –Encouraging efficient use of information technology and shared services; –Providing for consistent and transparent treatment of costs; 38

39 –Limiting allowable costs to make the best use of Federal resources; –Setting standard business processes using data definitions; –Encouraging non-Federal entities to have family-friendly policies; –Strengthening oversight; and –Targeting audit requirements on risk of waste, fraud, and abuse Upon implementation, the new regulation will supersede, for USAID, OMB Circulars A-21, A-87, A-110, and A-122, Circulars A-89, A-102, and A-133; the guidance in Circular A-50 on Single Audit Act follow- up; and USAID’s 22CFR Part 226 Implementation of Uniform Requirements (OMB Super- circular) 39

40 USAID’s implementation of the Uniform Requirements intends to include amendments to retain useful or necessary policy which has been already published in 22 CFR Part 226. This includes: Requirements concerning the use of metric system of measurement Contracting with Small and minority businesses, women’s enterprises, and labor surplus area firms The ability to suspend or terminate awards in the national interest, administrative procedures regarding disputes and appeals and appeals USAID’s marking and branding policy –Looking forward to partner suggestions received during the rule making process with final rule projected for year end Implementation of Uniform Requirements (OMB Super- circular) 40

41 Choice of Instrument (COI) ADS Chapter 201 on “Planning” underscores the critical importance of COI decisions: –“During the project design process, one of the most critical choices the project design team must make is selecting the optimal mix of implementing mechanisms” ACES makes 10 process improvement recommendations to support increasing the “Value-for-Money” that USAID receives through A&A awards –“Select the most appropriate Instrument (i.e. Acquisition or Assistance)”is one of the 10 ACES recommendations 41

42 The ACES consultants recommended that USAID: –Update and clarify its instrument selection guidance, as the current federal-wide guidance does not provide clear guidance for USAID context To accomplish this, a multi-disciplinary team with M/OAA, GC, PPL, and other representatives will examine the ADS chapters relevant to COI: –ADS 201 Planning –ADS 300 on Agency A&A Planning –ADS 304 on Selecting between A&A implementing instruments Choice of Instrument (COI) 42

43 These chapters and related guidance, templates and training will be updated and harmonized to: –Clarify roles and responsibilities of Project Design Teams and Contracting Officers –Address recent developments such as new case law on the use of intermediaries –Standardize practices and documentation to achieve greater consistency across the Agency, both in Washington DC and the field Choice of Instrument (COI) 43

44 Monthly meetings with major Bureaus on A&A planning and tracking PALT, especially on large requirements Incorporated lessons learned – early and continued engagement, PALTs signed off with M/OAA and Bureau leadership, weekly meetings on major requirements, sequestering tech panels, concurrent cost/technical reviews, and improved templates/guidance. Enhanced our system (GLAAS) to ensure more efficient and greater compliance with tracking PALTs. We realize a number of legacy procurements have continued to have lengthy PALTs, but lessons learned have been more fully incorporated in our more recent efforts such as Global Health Supply Chain.
