What is an ANA impact visit?
How do we prepare for an impact visit?
Objective Work Plan (OWP)
For this section, you should be prepared to discuss your OWP and any methods used to track your ability to meet your project objectives.
ANA would like to learn about staff and consultants hired to work on the project. The evaluator will also ask questions relating to the project’s financial management.
- Identify staff and consultants who worked on the project and the total number of hours/weeks worked. For consultants, please have total hours worked available, the dollar amount paid (per hour and in total), and the reason for hire.
- The person who handled the project’s finances will be asked several questions, including the tracking process for the non-federal share of the project, questions about the drawing down of funds, and inquiries regarding budget modifications.
- You will be asked about the record-keeping of the non-federal 20% contribution to the project, budget modifications, and ANA funds left over at the end of the project.
Community Involvement and Outreach
ANA appreciates input from beneficiaries and community members about their involvement in the planning and implementation of the project.
- Review any marketing or outreach materials developed for the project.
- You will be asked about the degree of community involvement in the planning and implementation stages of the project; the number of elders and youth involved, and the extent of their participation; and the type of activities and events held to share the project with the community.
