The Executive branch implementation of the TFCA and EAI programs is a model of effective interagency coordination led by a core team from USAID and the Departments of State and Treasury. The Department of Treasury has the lead responsibility for negotiating all debt treatment agreements concluded under the TFCA, as well as negotiating agreements involving NGOs or third parties. The Department of State has the lead responsibility for negotiating bilateral TFCA agreements dealing with the establishment and operation of local funds and local boards. USAID leads implementation of the resulting programs except in countries with no USAID presence, in which case the Department of State leads implementation. USAID hosts a small TFCA Secretariat; the Secretariat supports the implementation and oversight of TFCA agreements and management of local funds established under the agreement.
