Management and staffing (HVMS) ICASS Charges CDC Ethiopia

The International Cooperative Administrative Support Services (ICASS) program is one through which the

USG provides and shares the cost of common administrative support at post. To obtain generic

administrative support functions wherever possible and practical and rather than set up a separate support

apparatus, CDC continues to rely heavily upon ICASS service abroad. CDC Ethiopia subscribes to full

ICASS services, with some at a reduced rate. The estimated cost of FY08 ICASS charges is $500,000.

This amount includes services for 10 USDH and PSC employees (including for PSC for the Coordinator's

Office) along with FSN employees.
