1 In this report, due to accounting changes, MCC shows disbursements, which are cash outlays, rather than expenditures.
2 These measures are the same Key Performance Indicators that MCC reports each quarter. The Key Performance Indicators may change over time to more accurately reflect compact implementation progress. The unit for these measures is “number of” unless otherwise specified.
3 Program administration funds are used to pay items such as salaries, rent, and the cost of office equipment.
4 These amounts represent disbursements made that will be allocated to individual projects in the subsequent quarter(s) and reported as such in subsequent quarterly report(s).
The following MCC Compacts are closed and, therefore, do not have any quarterly disbursements: Armenia, Cape Verde, Georgia, Honduras, Madagascar, and Vanuatu.
