OMB Number: OMB 0412-0012.
Form Number: 282.
Title: Supplier's Certificate Agreement with the U.S. Agency for International Development Invoice-and-Contract Abstract.
Type of Submission: Renewal of information collection.
Purpose: The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) finances goods and related services under its Commodity Import Program which are contracted for by public and private entities in the countries receiving the USAID Assistance. Since USAID is not a party to these contracts, USAID needs some means to collect information directly from the suppliers of the goods and related services and to enable USAID to take an appropriate action against them in the event they do not comply with the applicable regulations. USAID does this by securing from the suppliers, as a condition for the disbursement of funds a certificate and agreement with USAID which contains appropriate representations by the suppliers.
