"Cost of Doing Business" Assessment

The CDC Global AIDS Program (GAP) in Kenya is part of a Coordinating Country Office (CCO) that

supports multiple CDC programs in addition to PEPFAR. Beginning in FY 2008, all programs in Kenya

were subject to a cost-sharing assessment to equitably distribute infrastructure costs. These infrastructure

costs include utilities and maintenance, staff costs for core administrative, finance and motor pool staff, and

support for the Director and Deputy Director of the Kisumu Field Station. Being part of a CCO is

advantageous to PEPFAR since it allows us to leverage resources, infrastructure and programs supported

by other CDC funds.

CDC has established additional cost-sharing assessments for global support services previously provided at

no cost to field operations. The ITSO Global Support assessment covers the cost of technical support,

software licenses, internet connectivity and periodic equipment replacement. The Global Business Services

assessment covers the cost of human resources and workforce development support at headquarters.

These services are advantageous to PEPFAR since centralized procurement of equipment and IT services

are much less expensive than local purchase.
