SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On August 19, 2016 USAID published a proposed rule at 81 FR 55405 revising the Agency for International Development Acquisition Regulation (AIDAR) to incorporate USAID Cooperating Country National Warrant Program into the regulation. The warrant program was intended to address a shortage of U.S. direct-hire contracting officers by delegating limited contracting officer authorities to a select number of Cooperating Country National Personal Services Contractors.

The purpose of this rule withdrawal is to inform the public that USAID will not be publishing a final rule to implement this warrant program.
