USAID previously posted a rule that would amend the USAID Acquisition Regulation (AIDAR), which is derived from the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act 2015 (FITARA) and OMB Memo M-15-14.
The proposed rule has a revised definition of “information technology” that would include all ICT4D activities, regardless if they are designed for external constituents, internal organizational needs, or USAID’s internal systems.
We have attached the proposed rules for your reference. Kindly review the rules to ensure that you are informed about the changes and start thinking about how you will be affected by the changes especially if you are funded by USAID.
