Project Design and Proposal Guidance for CRS Project and Program Managers

Project design and proposal writing are core responsibilities for CRS programming staff and take much investment of our human and financial resources. ProPack (Project Package) aims to help CRS staff work in a consistent manner with partners to raise the quality of our planning processes. It was written in response to field requests for more support on project design and also to incorporate the new Proframe© planning tool.
