    Dear all,

    Please see the attached guide, created by Olga Wall, Senior A&A Advisor at USAID.

    Note:  These requirements are VERY different for direct USAID contracts and grants vs subcontracts, subawards, vendors, or GUCs.

    Dear all,

    I noticed that USAID updated their guidance on SAMs and UEI registration confirming that foreign entities under $25,000 are automatically NOT exempt from UEI registration. AOs must approve the exemption on a case by case basis.

    You can find the reference on page 3.
    USAID Policy Guidance on Exemptions to Assistance Reporting Under the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (FFATA) - A Mandatory Reference for ADS Chapter 303
