Flexible Implementation and Assessment Team
The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs utilizes the Flexible Implementation Assessment Team (FIAT) to provide local national third-party assessment of cooperative agreements, grants, host nation programs, contracts and task orders throughout all 34 provinces of Afghanistan. FIAT program activities support effective monitoring and evaluation that will continue the transition and self-sustainability of Afghan-led institutions.
IDS equips FIAT with technically trained LNs who perform assessment and oversight duties across 63 programs, including hundreds of sites in some of Afghanistan’s most non-permissive provinces. IDS recruits, trains, deploys and manages LNs who possess the skills, geographic insights, situational awareness and cultural acumen to conduct assessments throughout each Afghan province.
