At right, you will find a number of FTFMS resources that we hope will be useful to newcomers and past users alike. If you have not used FTFMS before, or need a refresher, we recommend that you view the Adobe Connect recording titled "FTFMS Training Exercise." This 30-minute session will walk you through the training exercise in the FTFMS Guidance Document.
FTFMS reporting season is almost here. Please watch the recording with John Spears and Anne Swindale of the USAID Bureau for Food Security as they explain the basics of using FTFMS, highlight recent improvements and discuss entering data for complex indicators. They covered key indicator updates, addressed reporting challenges and took participant questions.
FTFMS will open October 1 and close November 22, 2013. If you have any questions about the system or the webinar, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
About FTFMS: The Feed the Future Monitoring System (FTFMS) is part of an interagency effort to consolidate USG reporting on FTF activities. USAID, USDA, MCC, Peace Corps, Treasury (contribution to the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program), IFAD, and the US-Africa Development Foundation contribute data to FTFMS. FTFMS indicator data are the official data for Feed the Future, provide the foundation for public documents like the FTF Scorecard and FTF Progress Report, and inform decisions on future programming and budget allocations.
