West Bank and Gaza Aid: USAID Generally Ensured Compliance with Anti-Terrorism Policies and Addressed Instances of Noncompliance, Report to Congressional Committees
United States. Government Accountability Office
From the document: "Since 1993, the U.S. government has provided more than $7.6 billion in bilateral assistance to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. This assistance, primarily through the Economic Support Fund, supports projects in areas including economic growth and recovery. According to USAID [U.S. Agency for International Development] and the Department of State, the U.S. government resumed the West Bank and Gaza program in April 2021, following the suspension of Economic Support Fund assistance in 2019 due to a combination of policy and legal actions. USAID is primarily responsible for administering the assistance to the West Bank and Gaza and ensuring compliance with its anti-terrorism policies and procedures. Appropriations acts for fiscal years 2020 through 2022 include provisions for GAO [Government Accountability Office] to review the treatment, handling, and uses of funds provided through the Economic Support Fund for assistance to the West Bank and Gaza. This report examines (1) the status of the program for fiscal years 2020 through 2022, as of September 30, 2022, and (2) the extent to which USAID complied with its policies and procedures to ensure that program assistance did not provide support to entities or individuals associated with terrorism in fiscal years 2020 through 2022. GAO reviewed relevant laws and USAID data, policies and procedures, compliance reports, and financial audits. GAO analyzed active prime awards and a random generalizable sample of subaward actions for compliance with USAID's anti-terrorism policies and procedures. GAO also interviewed USAID and State officials."
