An MCA Scorecard: Who Qualified, Who Did Not, and the MCC Board’s Use of Discretion

Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches

Abstract:

On May 6, the Millennium Challenge Corporation announced the selection of 16 countries eligible to apply for funding under the Millennium Challenge Account. This note examines the seven cases in which the Board used its discretion to either include countries that did not meet the indicators test, or exclude countries that passed the tests. Although several of the discretionary cases appear justified, several are more questionable, particularly the exclusion of Guyana and the inclusion of Georgia.
