|PD/A CRSP Fourteenth Annual Administrative Report|
Table of Contents
This section summarizes the expenditures of USAID, non-federal, and host country funds for CRSP research activities and program management. This unaudited information is intended to provide an overview of CRSP program budgets and matching support for the period 1 May 1995 to 31 July 1996.
The PD/A CRSP for a time included research-oriented functions in the PMO. At the suggestion of USAID, the PMO developed a method for disaggregating research expenses from administrative functions. For the reporting period, which is the last year under the third grant, PMO expenditures include categories for Operations and Administration, Research Support, New Research Initiatives, Special Research Funds, and funds for the EEP and Other Advisory Groups.
With the revised program structure under the new grant, future financial reporting will separate research and administrative expenditures even more clearly. In the new grant, for example, Central Data Base Management, Information Management and Networking, and Education Development Coordination, all with distinct operating budgets, are made a part of a new Research Support Component.
Cost-sharing contributions from the U.S. institutions and contributions from host countries are presented in Table 3. The overall average percentage of funding borne by U.S. universities is 25%, which fulfills the USAID requirement. Although host country cost-sharing is not required, these contributions reflect a continuing commitment to participation in the CRSP by our collaborators. The host country data were provided by the principal investigators of the projects.
