Three basic management and coordination structures have been created for the duration of the project. These are the Project Management Unit (PMU), the Strategic Partnership Project Steering Committee (SPSC) and the Strategic Partnership Coordination Group (SPCG). All three structures have specific responsibilities and tasks within the project with important linkages between them.
