USAID, State Department Post RFI for Executive Order 14110 Implementation

The U.S. Agency for International Aid and the Department of State are seeking assistance in implementing a Biden administration executive order for the safe and reliable development of artificial intelligence.

According to the agencies’ request for information, E.O. 14110 on Safe, Secure and Trustworthy Development and Use of AI directs the USAID and the State Department to publish the AI in Global Development Playbook, which incorporates the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s AI Risk Framework into emerging technology development and use beyond U.S. borders. The playbook outlines risks and opportunities associated with AI development and use in foreign countries and guides stakeholders and other organizations on safe AI operations.

Responses are due March 1, according to the RFI posted on the Federal Register.

Other agencies are also developing AI-related guidance with different focus points, such as cybersecurity and consumer protection.

In September, education technology advocacy groups urged the Department of Education and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to develop AI guidance supporting online monitoring, content filtering and other school-related activities and student protection. In May, Lauren Knausenberger, chief information officer of the Department of the Air Force and a past Wash100 awardee, said the agency is working on generative AI guidance that follows a zero trust approach and is compatible with the service’s mission areas.
