State concurred with and has taken action to address GAO’s February 2019 recommendation that it develop an initiative-wide planning and reporting mechanism. In May 2020, State instructed all U.S. embassies in the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI) countries to implement a new planning and reporting process designed to strengthen performance management. The new process includes an updated CBSI Results Framework and new quarterly reporting requirements for State and U.S. Agency for International Development programs. The updated CBSI Results Framework and reporting requirements provide an initiative-wide planning and reporting mechanism, which will enable posts to plan projects in alignment with goals and allow State to monitor, evaluate, and report on CBSI efforts.
