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.

This narrative describes the CDC Zambia Management and Staffing (M&S) needs for both GHCS and GAP
The United States Government (USG) Zambia team's M&S goal, through the CDC office in Zambia, is to
have sufficient staff for FY 2009 to provide more technical and programmatic oversight and assistance to all
implementing partners in Zambia. The CDC M&S budget in FY 2009 supports the USG interagency team
process of providing technical assistance and monitoring of PEPFAR activities across a significant array of
implementing partners in the Zambia. Zambia is a land-locked country surrounded by eight other countries.
It is divided into nine provinces and 72 districts. It is estimated that over 70 local languages exist. This
geographical and ethnic diversity influences the USG staffing needs to provide monitoring of the extensive
PEPFAR activities. Direct country project officer oversight at CDC Zambia is in place for 34 implementing
partner cooperative agreements covering activities in 15 technical program areas. Ten additional contracts
and task orders are also in place for specific management and operational requirements.
To achieve the goals of effective technical assistance (TA) to the Government of the Republic of Zambia
(GRZ) and joint USG oversight of implementing partners, the CDC Global AIDS Program (GAP) Office in
Zambia has planned for full staffing at 55 positions in FY 2009, an increase of two local positions from the
53 staff approved in the 2008 COP. Presently, 49 approved positions have been filled or are awaiting
security clearance. CDC is currently recruiting for the remaining four positions.
In FY 2009, the CDC staffing plan includes six United States Direct Hire (USDH) that are comprised of the
Chief of Party, Deputy Director, Chief of Epidemiology and Strategic Information, Chief of Laboratory
Infrastructure, Senior Epidemiologist for Operational Research, and Public Health Advisor. One new USDH
position was sought and approved in COP 2008. A further breakdown of total staff requested includes 32
technical locally engaged and contract staff, three program management staff, and 14 locally engaged
administrative support staff, including seven drivers including those in the field offices. In the attached
supporting documents a full USG PEPFAR Zambia organizational chart is attached. The specific disciplines
of technical staff were determined through an interagency staffing for results process that allows for
complementary staffing across agencies. While some technical positions in program areas are duplicative
for agencies, that duplicity is based on the total size of FY 2009 PEPFAR programming and the minimum
time required to adequately monitor the field work of partners and provide technical assistance to the GRZ.
M&S costs are inclusive of rent for offices and warehouse space, utilities, office operational costs, office
equipment, travel for M&S staff, training for M&S staff, relocation costs of four USDH positions expected in
FY 2009, residential leases and post allowances for six USDH positions, security services for offices, fuel,
and increased communications costs related to staff growth. Operational costs for three field offices within
the provincial health office structure in Eastern, Western, and Southern provinces and one Senior Advisor to
the Ministry of Health are also included. The majority of the technical staff work in more than three technical
program areas, however, those who can be clearly supported by a technical program area have been
backed out of this request. This FY 2009 submission does not include headquarters TA support.
