Summary
While the U.S. approach of providing in-kind food aid has assisted millions of hungry people for more than 50 years, in 2007 GAO reported limitations to its efficiency and effectiveness. To improve U.S. food assistance, Congress has authorized some funding for local and regional procurement (LRP) -- donors' purchase of food aid in countries affected by food crises or in a country within the same region. Through analysis of agency documents, interviews with agency officials, experts, and practitioners, and fieldwork in four African countries, this requested report examines (1) LRP's impact on the efficiency of food aid delivery; (2) its impact on economies where food is procured; and (3) U.S. legal requirements that could affect agencies' use of LRP. GAO recommends that the Administrator of USAID and the Secretary of Agriculture systematically collect evidence on LRP adherence to quality standards; work to improve the reliability of market intelligence; and work with the Secretary of Transportation to update the interagency memorandum of understanding (MOU) that governs cargo preference requirements
