                 Memorandum of November 13, 2014

                
Authorizing the Exercise of Authority Under 
                Public Law 85-804

                Memorandum for the Administrator of the United States 
                Agency for International Development

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, I hereby direct the following:

                The Administrator of the United States Agency for 
                International Development (USAID) is authorized to 
                exercise authority under Public Law 85-804, as amended 
                (50 U.S.C. 1431 et seq.), to the same extent and 
                subject to the same conditions and limitations as the 
                head of an executive department or agency listed in 
                section 21 of Executive Order 10789 of November 14, 
                1958, as amended, with respect to contracts performed 
                in Africa in support of USAID's response to the Ebola 
                outbreak in Africa where the contractor, its employees, 
                or subcontractors will have significant exposure to 
                Ebola. This authority may be exercised solely for the 
                purpose of holding harmless and indemnifying 
                contractors with respect to claims, losses, or damage 
                arising out of or resulting from exposure, in the 
                course of performance of the contracts, to Ebola.

                The USAID is exercising functions in connection with 
                the national defense in the course of complying with 
                its humanitarian mandate, and there is a relevant state 
                of national emergency that authorizes use of Public Law 
                85-804. I deem that the authorization provided in this 
                memorandum and actions taken pursuant to that 
                authorization would facilitate the national defense.

                This memorandum is not intended to, and does not, 
                create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, 
                enforceable at law or in equity by any party against 
                the United States, its departments, agencies, or 
                entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any 
                other person.
