  11. For the role of Project Coordinator, can this person be a new hire or an existing staff line? Additionally, should or can the Project Coordinator be the same person as the assigned staff member (from Phase II, Additional Activities, #3 in the FOA)?

  12. Measurable Outcomes & Purpose: The two main activities of the cooperative agreement are focused on disseminating information via communications, education and training (Part I), and increasing the number of relevant organizations that adopt HIV as a focus (Part II); however the Executive Summary lists measurable outcomes and the Purpose lists 5 Healthy People 2020 focus areas. I understand the primary focus of the cooperative agreement is two-parted, would a successful awardee be expected to evaluate its success based on the activities or would the awardee also be expected to track MSM health and behavior?
