This ADS chapter sets forth USAID’s mandatory policies and required procedures with respect to the designation of, and agreements with, Public International Organizations (PIOs), which are defined in section 308.6. Although USAID provides funding to PIOs under various types of arrangements, the single term "agreement" as used in this ADS chapter is considered to include cost-type agreements, project contributions, general contributions, Regional Development Objective Agreements (RDOAGs), fixed amount agreements, simplified agreements, and other types of implementing mechanisms through which funding is provided to PIOs. Within this ADS chapter and its supplements, the reference to awards will be construed to mean a type of agreement.
