Overview: In late 2004 USAID launched it Brand Strategy and Marking Plan requirements. Prior to that USAID, after extensive public comment, incorporated the requirements in 22 CFR, ADS and grant and contract clauses. The USAID Inspector General has also made it apart of its audits and semi annual report to Congress. For some organizations, developing an effective plan remains a challenge.
