This policy is a first step within a larger cultural and operational transformation to expand our engagement with the private sector to achieve outcomes of shared interest Agency-wide. The purpose of the policy is to accomplish the following: • Set forth the vision and operating principles that will guide and advance USAID’s engagement with the private sector, with an emphasis on promoting U.S. economic growth; • Illustrate ways USAID can consistently and comprehensively integrate private-sector engagement into the Agency’s operating model and programming across sectors; and • Clarify and harmonize concepts, terminology, and definitions.
