The article reports on U.S. President George W. Bush nominating Randall L. Tobias for the post of U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) administrator. U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has proposed to appoint him as director of a centralized foreign aid program. But what effect Rice's proposal will have are open questions. Tobias is the U.S. global AIDS coordinator. If confirmed, Tobias would succeed Andrew Natsios, who in early January 2006 joined the faculty of Georgetown University's Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service.
