Legal framework for cooperation
Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Moldova and the Government of the United States of America on technical cooperation signed on 21 March 1994.
Strategic documents for programming
In support of Moldova’s democratic and free-market reforms, USAID works primarily in two areas under the U.S. Government’s Foreign Assistance Framework:
Types of funds / financial instruments and assistance modalities
Procedures for programming, approval and implementation of projects
Project proposals are drafted unilaterally by USAID, according to areas of co-operation, stated in the Strategy. The potential beneficiary is consulted during the preparation of the project document (state of work). The Government is consulted only in case the potential beneficiary is a Government institution.
Special conditions for submission of project proposals and project acceptability criteria
Project proposals are drafted unilaterally by USAID.
The United States assistance to the Republic of Moldova has presented a tendency to decrease in recent years, due to the re-orientation of the US assistance to Central Asia and the Near East.
