Administration and Operations

The Executive branch implementation of the TFCA and EAI programs is a model of effective interagency coordination led by a core team composed of USAID and the Departments of State and Treasury. Consistent with the legislation and Executive Order 13345 (signed July 8, 2004), the Department of Treasury has the lead responsibility for negotiating all debt treatment agreements concluded under the TFCA, as well as for negotiating agreements involving non-governmental organizations or third-parties. The Department of State has the lead responsibility for negotiating bilateral TFCA agreements dealing with the establishment and operation of local funds and local boards. USAID leads implementation of the resulting programs except in countries with no USAID presence, in which case State leads implementation.USAID hosts a small EAI/TFCA Secretariat. The Secretariat supports the implementation and oversight of EAI and TFCA agreements and management of local funds established under the agreement.
