Title: United States Agency for International Development Acquisition Regulation (AIDAR): Designation of Personal Services Contractors (PSCs) as Contracting Officers and Agreement Officers 
Abstract:

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is publishing a final rule to amend its Acquisition Regulation (AIDAR) to allow for the designation of U.S. Personal Services Contractors (US PSCs) and Cooperating Country National Personal Services Contractors (CCN PSCs) as contracting officers and agreement officers.  The revisions would address a shortage of U.S. direct-hire staff by delegating the proposed authorities to qualified US and CCN PSCs.  The delegation of limited contracting/agreement officer authorities to a select number of CCN PSCs would also bolster the Agency to succeed in terms of building long-term, host country technical capacity to assist our overseas Missions materially with procurement responsibility.
