[Added: 2008/03/12]
Project Management Unit/SPREP, Governments of the 11 participating Pacific Island Countries (PICs), UNDP Samoa & UNDP RCB 2008/01 Completed As part of the Inception Phase it was agreed that the term "National Project Coordination (NPC)" be the generalized name for the institutional setup for coordination of PIGGAREP activities in the country regardless of the actual names of the institutions involved, and that each NPC establish its own rules and procedures for its meetings (if and when necessary). Concerning composition of the NPC then preliminary members are specified in Annex 9 the final Inception Report from January 2008 With regard to Project Advisory Committee (PAC) as part of the Inception Phase the major stakeholder's decided this should be replaced with a dedicated Project Steering Committee (PSC). The PSC will review and endorse QPRs and quarterly FRs including quarterly work plans and requests for quarterly advances. In addition such mechanism will have the ultimate authority to suspend disbursement if project performance benchmarks (i.e. ,operational criteria) are not met. With regard to composition the PSC is made made up of representatives from UNDP, SPREP and the PICs. A first PSC meeting is tentative set to beginning of March 2008

2.4 Ensure good cooperation between regional organizations such as SPREP and SOPAC
[Added: 2008/03/12]
Project Management Unit/SPREP UNDP Samoa 2008/01 Completed A Co-operation PIEPSAP-PIGGAREP Discussion Paper from July 2007 outlines the framework for project level corporation between PIGGAREP and PIEPSAP. Close cooperation between the two projects during the overlap period until August 2008 will help to ensure sustainability of PIEPSAP supported interventions. On the other hand PIGGAREP would be in position to deliver immediate results as it would be able to build on extensive preparatory work undertaken supported by PIEPSAP. Thus there exists a win-win situation for the two projects with regard to the assistance provided to the participating countries. In line with the co-financing arrangement between PIEPSAP and PIGGAREP, PIGGAREP will follow up on a number of renewable energy and policy activities that have been initiated and implemented over PIEPSAP's lifetime. Cooperation would be voluntary; result oriented and focused on the technical level while aiming at maximizing benefits for the PIC. Formalization of cooperation would be kept at a minimum with the will to cooperate followed by concrete action being much more important than formal arrangements. The purpose of this PIEPSAP and PIGGAREP project level corporation between SPREP and SOPAC is to ensure horizontal regional integration and sustainability of PIEPSAP interventions undertaken over the last 3.5 years. Such arrangement has been facilitated by the set-up where both projects are managed by UNDP Samoa
