Implementation and Reporting

USAID offers a variety of resources to assist with the implementation and reporting on food assistance programs. 

Pipeline and Resource Estimate Proposal Guidance

The Pipeline and Resource Estimate Proposal (PREP) describes an awardee's food security resource needs and activities over the course of the upcoming year. The FY 2013 PREP guidance is available here. The updated PREP Guidance and PREP Pipeline Analysis Template are required from October 1, 2017. 

Annual Results Report

The Annual Results Report (ARR) is an annual reporting requirement for current and recently closed Office of Food for Peace (FFP) awards implemented by private voluntary organizations (PVOs) during the fiscal year (FY). Awardees that receive funding from the Food for Peace Act Title II, International Disaster Assistance (IDA) account, Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) account and/or Community Development Funds (CDF) are required to submit ARRs. These include both development and emergency food assistance activities. Please refer to the ARR guidance for Development Awards and ARR guidance for Emergency and IFRP Awards and the associated templates for the Unique & Direct Participant & PAE Tables TemplateTechnical Sectors Survey and SAPQ Indicators for more information.

Food for Peace Management Information System

The Food for Peace Management Information System (FFPMIS) is a comprehensive program, proposal, and financial management system.  It was implemented by the Office of Food for Peace (FFP) to enhance the office’s program management and reporting capabilities.  It provides a collaborative environment for both FFP and its partners to manage activities and programs. For FFPMIS resources, please visit the FFPMIS Partner Info Site

Food for Peace Indicators

USAID’s Office of Food for Peace (FFP) revised the indicator list and Part II handbook for FFP projects in September 2017; the other documents were updated in April 2015. The list and handbook contain indicators for baseline, final evaluation, and annual monitoring. The indicator list and handbook better document and allow comparison of FFP project outcomes, generate standardized data to monitor project progress, and provide more detailed information on project accomplishments to stakeholders.
