From the Introduction: "Due to the publicity, media attention, and congressional inquiries, and because ventilators constituted a significant portion of USAID [United States Agency for International Development]'s COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] response to date, we sought to provide a review of the way decisions were made for the provision of ventilators. Specifically, our audit objectives were to (1) describe USAID's plans to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency and (2) determine the extent to which the practices employed to determine the use and allocation of ventilators during the COVID-19 pandemic differed from USAID's customary practices for responding to public health emergencies."
