Abstract of Proposed Collection

    As a normal course of business and in compliance with OMB 
Guidelines contained in Circular A-110, recipient organizations are 
required to provide, and the U.S. State Department required to collect, 
periodic program and financial performance reports. The responsibility 
of the State Department to track and monitor the programmatic and 
financial performance necessitates a database that can help facilitate 
this in a consistent and standardized manner. The SAMS-D RPM enables 
enhanced monitoring and evaluation of grants and cooperative agreements 
through standardized collection and storage of relevant award elements, 
such as quarterly progress reports, workplans, results monitoring 
plans, grant agreements, financial reports, and other business 
information related to ECA implementing partners. The SAMS-D RPM 
streamlines communication with implementers and allows for rapid 
identification of information gaps for specific projects.

Methodology

    Information will be entered into SAMS-D RPM electronically by 
respondents (ECA implementing partners). Non-respondents will submit 
their quarterly reports on paper.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy.
