USAID/Ghana, Primary Education Project (PREP)
TMG implemented the $1.2 million contract for the project component of PREP I, a $30 million sector grant designed to strengthen the institutional framework needed to assure a quality, effective, equitable and financially sustainable primary education system in Ghana by the year 2000. TMG provided technical assistance and training to support the policy reforms. As part of its assistance to the Program Management Unit (PMU) of the Ministry of Education, TMG also developed and implemented a nation-wide Education Management Information System (EMIS), providing consultants for the process from the needs assessment to staff training. The EMIS greatly improved the ability of both the Government of Ghana and the donor community to manage and monitor resources in the primary education system.
