Staff Directory

First Name, Last Name: Each field in the database will be searched for entries that begin with whatever you type in, so that if you type "jo" in the last name field, the search results will include last names like "Johnson", "Jones" and "Jolly".

Phone: Phone numbers are stored in the database in xxx-xxx-xxxx format for US numbers, and +xxxxxxxxxxx format for international numbers. Each record in the database will be searched for entries that include whatever you type into the Phone field, but you must include at least 4 digits / characters. Be sure to include any dashes (-). For example, if you know that the person you're searching for has the last four digits of 1234, you could enter "-1234" in the Phone field.

Other Fields: Each field in the database will be searched for entries that include whatever you type in, so if you type "irm" in the Organization field, the search results will include "M/IRM" as well as "M/IRM/CIS" for example.

No wild cards, such as the asterisk, are necessary, and you can mix upper and lower case letters without changing the results of the query.

Please note: Do not enter "USAID/W," "Washington," or "Washington, D.C.," in the "location" block of the Phone Book form. There are no such general locations in the database. A more specific location must be entered. Enter, for example, "RRB". Entering "202" in the "Phone" block will retrieve records of all employees located in Washington, D.C.

Fax Directory Instructions

Each field in the fax database will be searched for entries that include whatever you type in, so that if you type "irm" in the organization field, the search results will include organizations like "M/IRM" and "/MIRM/CIS". No wild cards, such as the asterisk, are necessary, and you can mix upper and lower case letters without changing the results of the query.
