Project Description

MSP supplemented existing USAID/Afghanistan monitoring efforts and functions as a part of a multi-tiered approach to the verification and monitoring of USAID projects in eastern Afghanistan. Technical officers in the USAID Mission use the information gathered and reported by MSP to inform their decision-making processes in managing USAID implementing partner performance in Afghanistan.

QED partners with other MSP task order holders to collect data and provide third party monitoring to USAID-funded projects throughout Afghanistan. The monitored projects are implemented through USAID contracts, grants, and cooperative agreements, as well as “on-budget assistance,” which is implemented directly through ministries of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA).
