USAID Branding Modernization Act
This bill authorizes the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to use various markings, including USAID logos and the U.S. flag, to identify overseas USAID programs. The USAID Inspector General shall submit to Congress an audit of compliance with USAID branding requirements by partner entities implementing USAID programs.
Current law requires overseas USAID programs to be identified as American Aid. USAID guidelines authorize the use of the U.S. flag only in certain situations.
