Comments

GAD Coordinator comments: This project was submitted in June. I believed that it had been approved in by Kristen in her last GSP application cycle, but apparently it was not, as I received an email from Dutch a few days after we had finished reviewing proposals in which he asked what is going on with his project. Because it was my fault that the project was not reviewed and because it is a simple world map project, the project was reviewed outside of the normal application cycle and the project was approved without additional comments from the Financial Chair or the staff GAD Specialist.
