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. 
USAID’s projects are implemented in partnership with the Government of Moldova by international and local nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), U.S. businesses, and U.N. agencies.



Special conditions for submission of project proposals and project acceptability criteria

Project proposals are drafted unilaterally by USAID.
In case of the US Embassy mechanism, project proposals are presented directly to the Embassy by NGOs or state institutions. The Embassy examines received proposals and 2-3 times per year takes the decision to support financially those selected.

Other information

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.
