Interagency Coordination & Harmonization

The Interagency Coordination and Harmonization work stream focuses on activities related to institutionalization of interagency consultations (U.S. focused and U.S.-Global).

Interagency & Harmonization

The Interagency Coordination and Harmonization team aims to:

  • Engage industry, USAID, USDA, and the Food Aid Consultative Group in developing a strategy to institutionalize interagency interactions relating to food aid products, quality assurance, and policy positions.
  • Provide support to the two main interagency technical groups (U.S. focused and U.S.-global focused) that currently meet, and promote these groups as modalities for ongoing discussion of product modifications, as well as the review and approval of new products and/or ingredients, and harmonization of policies, standard and specification-setting, and engagement with industry.
