Management entity

Approach

The goal of UGA 41M is to provide financial and programmatic support for the Peanut CRSP that coordinates with USAID and the participating U.S. and host country institutions. Provisions are that up to 20% of USAID funds can be directed to management entity activities such as personnel, travel, office operation, and reporting.

Achievements

Management of the Peanut CRSP. The project supports management entity (ME) staff for fiscal and programmatic management and reporting. A computer based data management and reporting system accessible to participants worldwide has been established during this phase by the program director, which has greatly improved management efficiency and access to information by everyone involved.
