Title: Monthly Commodity Status Report/Monthly Recipient Status Report.
Type of Review: Renewal of Information Collection.
Purpose: The Monthly Commodity Status Report/Monthly Recipient Status Report (MCSR/MRSR) allow the Office of Food for Peace (FFP) to track exactly how commodities are distributed. The Cooperating Sponsor submits an Annual Estimate of Requirements (AER) each year. The AER is an estimate of how much food is needed for a specified number of beneficiaries in a particular country. The MCSR/MRSR allows FFP to track the commodities from the amount requested on the AER to what is actually distributed. The MCSR tracks the commodities for each program and the MRSR tracks the number of recipients or beneficiaries reached each month under each FFP program.
