Since 2001 CDC has operated in Zambia under the Global AIDS Program (GAP), primarily providing

technical and logistical support to the Ministry of Health (MOH) and other national institutions for HIV/AIDS

and tuberculosis programs. With the rapid scale-up of PEPFAR activities over the last four years, the staff

and infrastructure of CDC-Zambia have continued to grow to support these activities. As a result the amount

paid to share quality administrative services under International Cooperative Administrative Support

Services (ICASS) has steadily risen. At the end of FY 2008 49 of CDC-Zambia's 53 approved positions had

been filled or were awaiting final security clearance. The total staffing will be brought to 55 in FY 2009. A

further breakdown of the staff can be found in the main management and staffing narrative. The total CDC

staff on the ground in Zambia is nearly 500% larger than when the PEPFAR program began in 2004. This

rapid growth has also seen a growth in all administrative requirements directly related ICASS charges. In

addition to staffing increases, CDC's ICASS charges associated with Financial Management and

Procurement have continued to increase, with the highest number of "strip code" charges in Financial

Management at post.

Additional funds in FY 2009 are being requested to support increased ICASS costs both at post and those

incurred at agency headquarters.
