Overview

•
•
•
USAID.Gov was launched on June
7 with a new look and feel.
The Administrator has taken a
hands-on approach to deliver a
more transparent, customeroriented site.
All of USAID website content will
be migrated to the new site
throughout the remainder of the
calendar year.
Website content will be lighter,
and flatter across the agency and
easier to find and use by
stakeholders.
A revised Governance structure is
currently being developed and
will define website roles and
responsibilities.

view of projects, tracked to dollar
spending.
The mapping application allows to view
specific project information by
geographic location
Data in AIDtracker is extracted from
Agency corporate systems.
The focus for Phase 1 was to have data
for 22 specific missions. An additional
18 missions decided to validate project
information which is also now available.

documents with others.

Mobile Applications
The new usaid.gov website has two mobile applications
1.
2.
DEC Evaluations - Improves access to USAID funded evaluation reports
by providing a mobile solution for accessing a subset of DEC evaluation
documents.
Portfolio Map - Browses our portfolio for a subset of the countries in
which USAID is working using the interactive map. The app will provide
general country overviews at a glance and also will allow users to access
more detailed information as needed.
These mobile applications allow users to access information using iPads and
iPhones.

Project Related Sites
• Mission websites and microsites (i.e. stand-alone websites) are being
integrated under the new usaid.gov site.
• This aligns with the White House’s ‘Campaign to Cut Waste’.
– Specifically, the June 2011 .gov domain registration freeze is intended to limit the
proliferation of new domains and stand-alone Web sites.
– This effort is to improve customers’ ability to locate Government information and
services, identify duplicate or non-integrated sites, consolidate use of Web resources,
and improve efficiency by leveraging existing platforms and infrastructure
• There is no plan to include project related sites as defined in ADS
557.3.4.1 or 557.3.4.2 in this integration for CY 12
– Project sites are those sites developed by partners or contractors under either
acquisition or assistance instruments with USAID which develop web sites to share
information with project members
• The integration of these sites will be re-evaluated in CY 13.
