1. The following responses are keyed to reftel, paragraph 3:

a) No. Generally, Post receives about $35,000 a year in
grants, which fall into three categories: Ambassador's small
grants program, Ambassador's HIV/AIDS fund, and Ambassador's
Fund for Cultural Preservation.

b) No.

c) Yes.

d) Being written for other purposes; see a.

e) The current grants workload is manageable; however,
grants training and authority should be held by at least two
officers at Post.



2. The following paragraph is keyed to reftel, paragraph 5:
Post needs a full time public diplomacy direct hire. Post's
increased focus on public diplomacy under the
"tranformational diplomacy" has taken significant resources
away from the Pol section.
