Additional Information on Eligibility
Competition is limited to the STDF hosted by the WTO. The STDF is a global partnership with a well-established, trusted presence and is uniquely qualified to further the global food safety capacity building objectives of this cooperative agreement. STDF's mandate is to: 1) increase awareness, mobilize resources, strengthen collaboration, identify and disseminate good practice; and 2) provide support and funding for the development and implementation of projects that promote compliance with international SPS requirements. According to an independent external evaluation of the STDF in 2008, concluded that the STDF "carries out an important role that no other single body would be able to accomplish". (Source: STDF Newsletter; Volume 2, Issue 1. February 2009. Accessible at: www.standardsfacility.org) As such, the STDF is uniquely equipped to fulfill the objectives of this cooperative agreement due to its diverse access to WTO members in both developed and developing countries and its ability to coordinate capacity building programs at a national, regional and global level. Engaging the STDF through this cooperative agreement will provide the FDA with ample opportunities to leverage additional resources among WTO member countries. Overall, the objectives of the STDF are directly in line with the objectives of this cooperative agreement. This ability to advance the objectives of this cooperative agreement through Member Country engagement and leveraging is a requisite for success.
