PEPFAR's annual planning process is done either at the country (COP) or regional level (ROP).
PEPFAR's programs are implemented through implementing partners who apply for funding based on PEPFAR's published Requests for Applications.
Since 2010, PEPFAR COPs have grouped implementing partners according to an organizational type. We have retroactively applied these classifications to earlier years in the database as well.
Also called "Strategic Areas", these are general areas of HIV programming. Each program area has several corresponding budget codes.
Specific areas of HIV programming. Budget Codes are the lowest level of spending data available.
Expenditure Program Areas track general areas of PEPFAR expenditure.
Subdivisions of Program Areas, these track general higher level sub-classifications of expenditure.
Subdivisions of Major categories, these are the most detailed expenditure data.
Cross-cutting attributions are areas of PEPFAR programming that contribute across several program areas. They contain limited indicative information related to aspects such as human resources, health infrastructure, or key populations programming. However, they represent only a small proportion of the total funds that PEPFAR allocates through the COP process. Additionally, they have changed significantly over the years. As such, analysis and interpretation of these data should be approached carefully. Learn more
PEPFAR sets targets using the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) System - documentation for which can be found on PEPFAR's website at https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. As with most data on this website, the targets here have been extracted from the COP documents. Targets are for the fiscal year following each COP year, such that selecting 2016 will access targets for FY2017. This feature is currently experimental and should be used for exploratory purposes only at present.

CDC incurs many cross-cutting administrative costs in-country, including office rent, vehicles and their maintenance, and administrative salaries. These costs are accounted for in the Management and Staffing section of this document. However, many costs are directly attributable to particular program areas. The funding in this activity will pay for a portion of the administrative costs of maintaining a Direct Hire, CDC employee in-country: a Senior Technical Advisor for Strategic Information. The funding will pay for rent and utilities of said employee.

The CDC Mozambique Management and Staffing program is divided among four different mechanisms - 4864, 4866, 4865, 4867. The four activities that contain costs associated with this program are 8512, 8611, 8624, 8634. The Management and Staffing program supports all administrative costs associated with running the robust portfolio of technical programs, including administrative staff salaries, office costs as well as direct program support through staff and other costs to manage grants and advise program staff on administrative issues.
The CDC office currently has 26 positions under various mechanisms - including four direct hires, 13 locally employed staff and nine contracted staff (COMFORCE, PSC). Three positions are currently vacant, but will be filled in the near future. Each of these positions existed when COP 2006 was submitted with the exception of one administrative assistant which was a proposed position in 2006 and since been filled. We had proposed an additional seven positions at that time, but due to various hiring difficulties - lack of available hiring mechanisms, visa issues with the local government and severe shortage of local human resources, only the administrative assistant position was filled. CDC is currently dealing with these issues on various fronts and hopes that a sound resolution will be found.
In addition to the approved positions from the 2006 COP, CDC Mozambique is proposing 12 technical and administrative positions that will manage the significant increase in activities for 2007 and beyond. They are discussed in the Staffing Matrix as well the individual program activities that will fund these positions.
CDC's office space is currently full with existing staff. In order to accommodate the expected growth in staffing, CDC received approval in the 2006 COP to expand the office to the adjacent space in our existing building. We are in the final stages of the OBO approval process and rehabilitation should begin in the coming months. Funding for rehabilitation was budgeted in 2006.
