This is an account of a donor funded project which is one of the several that together, supports a comprehensive education reform program in a progressive developing country. The project is substantially funded and is staffed by host country professionals with limited expatriate assistance. Project personnel work for a US contracting firm and a consortium of subcontracting institutions. To strengthen indigenous capacity, facilitate coordination between projects and insure mutually reinforcing efforts, the overall national reform program is managed by the nation’s Ministry of Education.
