Major Management Challenges

Based on our recent audits, investigations, and other oversight work, we identified four top management challenges facing USAID in fiscal year 2022:

  1. Managing risks to humanitarian assistance.
  2. Sustaining international development gains.
  3. Advancing coordination with stakeholders.
  4. Implementing core management functions.

The report also includes two spotlight sections relating these crosscutting challenges to Afghanistan and COVID-19.

In addition to meeting the requirements of the Reports Consolidation Act, this report helps inform our work and frame our dialogues with Congress and the Administration to pursue stakeholder priorities for effective stewardship of U.S. funds dedicated to foreign aid and development.
