The TOPS Program is a Leader with Associates (LWA) Cooperative Agreement, which provides direct access to the expertise of leading practitioners in food security and nutrition implementation and support, including The TOPS Program consortium partners.  Any US government entity can access this expertise by presenting a detailed Scope of Work to TOPS, including the available funding, and TOPS will identify the necessary expertise on a pre-approved basis.  This expedited funding mechanism has proven valuable in completing time-sensitive work within the food security and nutrition field.
