ACOPS and NEFCO are designated as Partner Agencies.  Partner Agencies are mandated to receive funds from donors and coordinate Project activity of donors that request a Partner Agency to do so.  Partner Agencies will establish Project Trust Funds to receive funds from bilateral and multilateral donors.

The Project Steering Committee as the Project supreme governing body discuss and approve annual work plans and budgets for the Project, oversee their implementation and adopt corrective actions relating to the further implementation of the Project.  In order to maintain the integrity of the project, especially under the condition that there are Executing Agency and two Partner Agencies, handling funds of various sources, the Project Steering Committee functions as the forum to discuss and agree on the integrated work plan and review the progress of the implementation of activities based on the agreed work plan. The Committee has three categories of participation: full member, permanent participant and observer. Following representatives are members of the Committee:  Executing Agency, Implementing Agency,  USA, Canada, Italy, Iceland, GPA Secretariat, IOC of UNESCO. Partner Agencies and RAIPON are the permanent participants. NEFCO will have a full member status when speaking as a donor. EBRD and NDEP are invited as observers.

Also the Project Supervisory Council was established. It includes representatives of  Executing Agency, Implementing Agency and Partner Agencies.  The donors may be represented at the Supervisory Council by their chosen Partner Agencies. Between times of the Steering Committee meetings the Supervisory Council will be a working body in charge of supervising the Project implementation in a coordinated manner according to a Project work plan approved by the Steering Committee. The Council meets as a rule once every three months or as often as required normally in form of teleconference and reporting on its progress to the Steering Committee in a timely manner.
