USTDA Director Receives Evaluation in Action Award

Arlington, VA – Today, U.S. Trade and Development Agency Director Enoh T. Ebong accepted the Federal Evaluation Community’s 2023 Evaluation in Action Award to recognize her leadership in elevating evaluation and promoting the evidence-based decision making that drives USTDA’s continued success.

“I am honored to receive this award from the Federal Evaluation Community. The work of evaluators across government is critical to our ability to learn, build strategy, and drive improvement,” said Director Ebong. “This award also recognizes the diligence, care, and expertise of USTDA’s Office of Monitoring and Evaluation. Our Agency’s work is enormously complex, and evaluation plays an integral role in maximizing return on investment for our overseas partners, U.S. industry, and American taxpayers.”

USTDA’s success in developing infrastructure in emerging economies using U.S. goods and services is informed by 30 years of rigorous program monitoring and evaluation. These efforts inform both the design of new activities and USTDA’s strategic planning, as well as increase the likelihood of U.S. exports and development outcomes associated with USTDA’s funding.


The U.S. Trade and Development Agency helps companies create U.S. jobs through the export of U.S. goods and services for priority infrastructure projects in emerging economies. USTDA links U.S. businesses to export opportunities by funding project preparation and partnership building activities that develop sustainable infrastructure and foster economic growth in partner countries.
