against the evaluation criteria contained herein and in the Cooperator program regulations.

All U. S. agricultural commodities, except tobacco, are eligible for consideration.FAS allocates funds in a manner that effectively supports the strategic decision–making initiatives of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 199 3. In deciding whether a proposed project will contribute to the effective creation, expansion, or maintenance of foreign markets, FAS considers whether the applicant provides a clear, long–term agricultural trade strategy, has the broadest producer representation and affiliated industry participation of the commodity being promoted, and includes an effective program time line against which results can be measured at specific intervals using quantifiable product or country goals.

FAS also considers the extent to which a proposed project targets markets with the greatest growth potential.

These factors are part of the FAS resource allocation strategy to fund applicants who can best demonstrate performance and address USDA and FAS goals and objectives.

Cooperator program participants must adhere to GPRA and USDA Monitoring and Evaluation guidance.
