Exceptions to Public Disclosure of USAID-Funded Evaluations and Action Memo Template
USAID is committed to full and active disclosure of evaluation reports, methods, findings, and data produced by the Agency or partners receiving USAID funding. This is guided by Agency policies and directives, including the USAID ADS Reference 201mae and ADS 540 – Development Experience Information. These direct that evaluation final reports (or reports submitted by evaluators to USAID as their final drafts) must be submitted within three months of completion to the Development Experience Clearinghouse (DEC). PPL/LER will work with the Office of the General Counsel to review and clear any exceptions to this requirement.
Principled exceptions to this requirement will be rare, must be requested and justified in writing, and should be based on criteria highlighted in ADS Reference 201mae document and action memo template.
