Verify Reported Data - ADS 303.2

ADS 303.2, Primary Responsibilities, states that technical representatives should review and analyze reports, verify timely performance, monitor reporting requirements, and maintain contact, including site visits, which allow for a more effective review of the project.

USAID’s Guidebook for Managers and Cognizant Technical Officers (CTOs) on USAID Acquisition and Assistance further states that these site visits may include checking actual contractor performance against scheduled and reported performance or determining whether the recipient is using its best efforts to achieve the purpose of the grant or agreement.

In addition, as required by the technical representative’s designation letter, staff is authorized to request that the agreement officer take necessary action when a recipient does not submit performance reports or when information about implementation activities is inadequate or indicates a problem.

General Recommendations
