Support FFP in streamlining their reporting guidance to make it more efficient and user friendly. Possible tie in of other internal/external guidance as well.
FFP has to compile a lot of data for Congress. We would like someone to work with the current reporting guidance to make it more efficient, less burdensome, clearer, and more user friendly for our partners and staff. There are multiple considerations and many guidance documents that are all interconnected.
For more than 60 years, FFP has worked to fight hunger and reduce poverty abroad—helping approximately 3 billion people. FFP provides emergency food assistance to those affected by conflict and natural disasters and provides development food assistance to address the underlying causes of hunger. More information on USAID food assistance projects can be found on the USAID website at https://www.usaid.gov/what-we-do/agriculture-and-food-security/food-assistance/guidance.
The Grants Management Services Team brings a customer service approach in support of all FFP grants management issues. The team focuses its creative energy on reviewing, refining, and developing procedures and policies tied to procurement and award administration, formulating assistance and acquisitions policies, capturing best practices, and proposing innovative solutions to grants management issues.
