Additional Information on Eligibility
The United States Government, represented by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Uganda, is seeking public comments on the DRAFT Program Description for a new activity titled Citizens Electoral Engagement Activity (CEEA) from local entities. To be considered a “local” entity as defined in ADS 303.3.6.6(b)(2), an entity must: •Be organized under the laws of the recipient country; •Have its principal place of business in the recipient country; •Be majority owned by individuals who are citizens or lawful permanent residents of the recipient country or be managed by a governing body, the majority of whom are citizens or lawful permanent residents of a recipient country; and •Not be controlled by a foreign entity or by an individual or individuals who are not citizens or permanent residents of the recipient country. The term “controlled by” means a majority ownership or beneficiary interest as defined above, or the power, either directly or indirectly, whether exercised or exercisable, to control the election, appointment, or tenure of the organization's managers or a majority of the organization's governing body by any means, e.g., ownership, contract, or operation of law. “Foreign entity” means an organization that fails to meet any part of the “local organization” definition. Government controlled and government owned organizations in which the recipient government owns a majority interest or in which the majority of a governing body are government employees, are included in the above definition of local organization.
