Agency for International Development Acquisition Regulation 
(AIDAR): Agency Warrant Program for Individual Cooperating Country 
National Personal Services Contractors (CCNPSCs)

AGENCY: U.S. Agency for International Development.

ACTION: Proposed rule; withdrawal.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has 
decided not to implement the Agency Warrant Program for individual 
Cooperating Country National Personal Services Contractors and is 
therefore withdrawing the August 19, 2016 proposed rule amending the 
Agency for International Development Acquisition Regulation (AIDAR) to 
incorporate this warrant program into the regulation.

DATES: USAID is withdrawing the proposed rule published on August 19, 
2016 (81 FR 55405) as of June 23, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lyudmila Bond, Telephone: 202-567-4753 
or Email: lbond@usaid.gov.

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.

    Dated: June 6, 2017.
Mark Walther,
Acting Chief Acquisition Officer.
