PPP Laws, Policies, and Guidance

U.S. Department of State:

The Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM) is published by the Department of State and can be accessed on the Department's website. It contains the functional statements, organizational responsibilities, and authorities of each of the major components of the Department. Together, the manual comprises the basic organizational directive of the Department. Guidance on public- private partnerships (PPPs) can be found under the 2 FAM 970.

U.S. Congress:

On July 30, 2008, H.R. 5501, the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde United States Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008 was signed into law, authorizing up to $48 billion over the next 5 years to combat global HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. As a part of the Act, Congress authorized PEPFAR to promote PPP’s as a priority element of U.S. strategy to combat the HIV/AIDS pandemic and other global health crises.


Proposed Country Operational Plans (COPs) for bilateral resources are submitted by U.S. Embassies in-country every year, excluding procurement-sensitive funding information for awards that have not yet been made. PEPFAR Fiscal Year 2014 COP Guidance includes overarching guidance on the development and implementation of PPPs in-country.

In addition, the Technical Considerations Provided by PEPFAR Technical Working Groups for FY 2014 provides more in-depth factors to consider when engaging with the private sector.

U.S. Agency for International Decelopment (USAID):

In addition, USAID’s Global Development Alliance Annual Program Statement, which invites organizations to submit proposals for public-private partnerships, has additional guidance on PPPs.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

In 2009, the CDC issued a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for the purpose of funding recipients to manage and administer PPPs under in PEPFAR countries. The FOA outlines the expected activities in the management and administration of PPPs developed by the USG in PEPFAR countries.
