USAID External Review of Dry Grain Pulses CRSP

Documents for Desk-top Review

Welcome to the Pulse CRSP External Review Password-Protected site

We at the Dry Grain Pulses CRSP Management Office have established this site to be used in conjunction with the Pulse CRSP website to help you access information on the operations and projects of the Dry Grain Pulses CRSP with greater ease. We believe, however, that the public Pulse CRSP website is the ideal place to begin reading about our work. This special Evaluators’ section is designed only to complement the information available on the generally accessible Pulse CRSP website—and make some of the material more readily visible for downloading. 

Briefly, this password-protected section provides ready access to financial, workplans, and progress reports, including documents that are not in the public domain, mostly in PDF format. We have also added links from the April 2012 BIFAD (Board for International Food and Agricultural Development) meetings, specifically, the CRSP Directors’ Presentations to the BIFAD External Review Team, which should provide you with a helpful look at CRSPs in general.  

If you should require WORD or EXCEL versions of any of these PDF documents for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact the Pulse CRSP office at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). For a more extensive details on how best to utilize both the public and this Evaluators’ section of the Pulse CRSP website, click here.
