It is thus important to insure that the implementation of TEEP is provided with the appropriate guidance and direction considering the said Project’s policy  links and operational inter-relationships with the larger programs on elementary education, and nonformal education. As the TEEP Project Advisory Committee is the body which is supposed to perform this function of policy steering and program coordination , it is now necessary to amend the composition and functions of the TFFP Project Management Advisory Committee (TFFP-PMAC)

c.)   Review the  progress of project implementation and make necessary decisions to resolve issues and problems;
d.)   Provide inter-departmental coordination in the course of project implementation;
e.)   Serve as a venue for articulating the perspective and concerns of key elementary education stakeholders such as local governments, parents and communities;
f.)   Consider and formulate measures to insure the sustainability of the project’s innovations and improvements; and
g.)   Approve key project milestones such as each of the 5-year Division Education Development Plans of provinces to be supported by the project, proposed annual project plan and budget, and annual project report.
4.   The following 3 members of the PMAC shall also be designated as Deputy Project Directors with project-related duties corresponding to their respective regular functions:  Assistant Secretaries for Regional Concerns, Budget and Legal Affairs. The project Director and Project Manager shall call upon these deputy project directors as needed.
