Technical Guidance

This guidance document is designed to provide information for USAID staff, particularly Mission project design and management teams, and OAA (Office of Acquisition and Assistance) staff. Its primary purpose is to offer options for designing flexible and shock-responsive programs. Additionally, it provides insights into adapting existing development programs that were not initially designed with shock responsiveness in mind. The resource serves as a tool for practitioners and decision-makers within USAID to enhance program design and management strategies, ensuring flexibility and responsiveness to shocks in both new and existing development initiatives.
