To: AIACC Technical Committee
Attached are two new proposals from AIACC projects for a Supplemental Grant. They are:
AF04, Bob Scholes PI. $17,000 requested for training workshop on conservation planning.
Funds would be used to bring to the workshop persons persons from outside South Africa who
have a role and background in conservation planning. Requested funds exceed the $15,000
budgeted for each project. [Note: Bob is a member of the Technical Committee and is on the
distribution list for this email. Bear that in mind before using "reply all" to broadcast
your comments. If you have confidential comments, please send them to me at
SIS06, Anthony Chen PI. $15,000 requested for training workshop on modeling epidemiology of
dengue fever and to carryout modeling analysis. The proposal does not identify either
capacity building or stakeholder engagement as an explicit objective. However, it does
include a training workshop and supervision of a student who would conduct a modeling
analysis. Is this satisfactory or should we ask the PI to revise the proposal to better
emphasize and describe the capacity building aspect?
In a week or two I will be drafting a report to USAID on the Supplemental Grant Program.
I'll circulate copies to you. This will give you an overview of what we've approved thus
far. There are still a large number of projects who have not applied for a grant. I plan
to contact them soon to inquire about their intentions for submitting a proposal.
I look forward to your comments on the attached proposals.
