TraiNet Reporting Not Accurate - ADS 253.3 - ADS (b)

ADS 253.3 states that sponsoring units must:

  • Design, implement, and track the training or program event for results and impact,
  • Design training programs that support USAID objectives or other USG initiatives,
  • Report on their participant training activities as part of their broader performance measurement, evaluation, and reporting requirements, and
  • Design and carry out participant training activities with cost control and cost-sharing practices whenever possible.

ADS (b) requires sponsoring units to enter data in Training Results and Information Network (TraiNet) for any in-country training programs or subprograms of 2 consecutive class days or more in duration, or 16 contact hours or more scheduled intermittently.

The policy also states that sponsoring units should report any and all other in-country training events that are critical to their development efforts.

General Recommendations

  • Institute procedures to consistently collect and input training data into the USAID training network.
