Risk Assessment and Mitigation Requirements for High-Risk Environments

May 2018 — By USAID/ODFA

This document is an annex to the USAID Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) Proposal Guidelines that provides supplemental requirements for proposals for programs in high-risk operating environments. USAID/OFDA recognizes that certain operating environments present a heightened risk of waste, fraud, abuse, and diversion due to the presence of groups and individuals sanctioned by the U.S. Government (USG)1 and limited ability of USAID/OFDA personnel to directly monitor program implementation.

USAID/OFDA will review its global portfolio at a minimum annually to determine where these conditions make it necessary for applicants to provide additional information regarding programmatic safeguards and risk mitigation strategies.
