The delivery of foreign development assistance is a component of the US governments diplomatic instrument of national power. As such, it would seem prudent to enable flexibility in the provision of foreign assistance to accommodate political changes in the domestic, international, and beneficiary country environments. However, as this paper demonstrates, the implementation of the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993, an amendment to the Foreign Assistance Act, and the terrorist attacks in September 2001 culminated in greatly restricting flexibility in the delivery of foreign development assistance.
