USAID is an independent federal government agency that receives overall foreign policy guidance from the Secretary of State, advancing U.S. foreign policy objectives.
USAID works in close partnership with private voluntary organizations, universities, American businesses, international agencies, other governments, and other U.S. government agencies.
Based on active partnerships with local public, private and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), USAID field missions in each country identify needs and establish a strategy for delivering assistance to the host country. In order to define USAID’s strategic objectives in a given country, consideration is given to U.S. foreign policy interests, the level of resources available to the USAID mission (both financial and human), and the role of other donors in the host country.
The authorities to design, procure and implement specific activities are largely delegated to field missions, based on USAID/Washington’s approval of the country strategy.
Like other missions, USAID/Paraguay USAID utilizes various acquisition and assistance instruments to implement its activities. Contracts, grants and sub-grants,, cooperative agreements and purchase orders are some of the instruments which are negotiated and signed worldwide by USAID.
