Technical Management Advisory Committee
The Technical Management Advisory Committee (TMAC) advises the Legume Innovation Lab on strategic planning and monitors projects. The Management Office (MO) consults with TMAC on emerging issues and technologies, strategies for building sustainable institutional capacity and achieving development impacts, and program management approaches.
Reviewing project workplans and performance indicators
Monitoring the scientific quality and productivity of projects and recommending adjustments
Identifying and advising the MO on strategic topical areas for future RFPs
The TMAC will be formed after the subawards are selected and partner institutions identified. The non-Legume Innovation Lab external members will be appointed by the MO in consultation with the AOR for the duration of the Leader award based on their qualifications and experience. The three internal members (CRSP PIs) will be elected by the PIs for staggered two-year terms of service.
The TMAC will hold three face-to-face meetings over the award period but will conduct most of its business through conference calls and electronic communication.
