USAID’s Automated Directives System (ADS), chapter 303.3.17, addresses the administration of grants and cooperative agreements and advises that administration responsibilities may include reviewing and analyzing performance reports, performing site visits, and substantial involvement by USAID in a cooperative agreement.
ADS 303.3.17(b) states that site visits are an important part of effective award management because they usually allow a more effective review of the project.
- Establish and implement a plan to provide performance monitoring and oversight for awards with the regular review of partner reports, compliance with award requirements, and random checks to ensure that implementing partners have support for claimed results.
