GAO summarized the major issues relating to the Agency for International Development's (AID) foreign economic assistance programs.

GAO found that Congress and the new administration will need to: (1) consider the policies and priorities AID should address in the next decade; and (2) identify better ways to administer, manage, and control resources allocated to the program. GAO also found that AID will need to: (1) consider focusing programs on more manageable units by reducing the number of overseas missions and concentrating resources on fewer and larger projects, rather than on numerous small projects; (2) use program funds more efficiently and in a more timely manner; and (3) strengthen control over its program funds.
