Abstract : This report is one in a series resulting from ongoing general management review of the Agency for International Development (AID). Along with other reports in this series, it is intended to help policymakers understand AID's current structure as they consider whether and to what extent changes need to be made to more effectively use economic assistance as a tool of foreign policy in the 1990s. It presents a profile of MD by describing the organizational structure of AID's Washington, D.C., headquarters (AID/W) and the type and number of AID's overseas offices; scope and composition of bilateral economic assistance administered by the agency; allocation of resources, such as assistance levels, projects, staff, and operating expenses, among AID's offices; and composition of AID's work force and how it is distributed among the agency's management and program functions. -BKA
