*** JOTW Potluckers:

First, let me thank all of you for being such gracious and congenial guests. And generous!; I don't think I'll need to eat for a week!

I apologize about the parking confusion. With extreme fire danger we just can't have people parking in the dry fields, even though the grass has been cut. Extra special thanks to Ned for providing the limousine for shuttle service.

Song Li left a bottle of saki behind, so I'll be toasting the success of the Virtual Potluck for a while. It doesn't go too well with all the cakes and cookies, but it's great with the tomatoes.

Again, my deep appreciation to all of you for your generous participation. If you find yourself in the cultural backwaters of southern Oregon (excepting Ashland and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival), give me a shout. I'm in the book.

usual application fee (US$40/CDN$44 for faxed/mailed/phoned enrollments;

US$30/CDN$33 for Internet enrollments). Applications must be *received* at the San

Francisco Headquarters office during the month of September to qualify. When you join or renew, be sure to indicate JOTW is that “How did you hear about us?” block. Enough JOTWers have joined IABC to form a good-sized chapter.

*** I apologize for the Monday morning JOTW 35-2008 coming out late on Tuesday. I was told by Topica yesterday that the problem was fixed immediately so no worries. I then said that two full working days was not “immediately” and that all my queries on Monday and Tuesday were not answered until now. I was told if I could find a better free service to go for it.

*** Robin Mayhall, APR, survived the storm:

Hey, Ned,

I personally came through pretty well. I stayed in BR during the

storm, as did most of my relatives. It was a little scary in the

height of the wind, but my home was not damaged other than one piece

of a metal louvered panel that was pulled off the edge of my roof.

My dad has two large trees through his roof, and my aunt, although

her house itself is undamaged, lost every tree in her yard and all

the fencing around it.

We're all physically OK, though. My family and I all prepared well

and stocked up on all we needed. I was only without electricity for

36 hours, which was incredibly lucky. In the aftermath there were

250,000 people in the greater BR area without electricity. I think

they've already got about 80,000 houses back on, which is amazing

considering the amount of damage citywide. There are trees and large

branches down *everywhere* — some trees ripped out by the roofs —

fences torn apart, shingles pulled off roofs, chimneys toppled, etc.

And 90 percent of traffic lights still out as of yesterday!

I go back to work “for real” on Monday, but I went in for a few hours

on Wed., Thurs. and Friday of last week to do crisis communications.

We learned a lot of lessons from Katrina and Rita three years ago, so

things went pretty smoothly there, too.

It will be another two or three weeks before things are really “back

to normal” here, but I am definitely one of the lucky ones! Thank you

for asking. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


*** From Gerard Braud:

Crisis communications expert Gerard Braud (Jared Bro) has once

again successfully implemented his “crisis communications in the

dark ages” strategy as he evacuated New Orleans last Friday in

advance of Hurricane Gustav. Braud temporarily set up shop in

Florida and is heading back home as soon as electrical power is


He has some great thoughts on crisis communications and media

relations as it relates to Hurricane Gustav. You can read them on

his blog at:

If you would like to know more of his strategic tips for surviving

when there is no electricity, I suggest you purchase his 2-DVD set

called “Katrina Lessons.” The segment on crisis communications in

the dark ages is especially interesting. You can purchase them at:

Hope you're keeping well. Here is a description of work for an upcoming project at the Global Fund for the newsletter.

Many thanks!


13.) Consultant to Copy Edit the Global Fund's Country Programs Operations Manual, Global Fund, Geneva, Switzerland



The Global Fund's Country Programs Operations Manual ('Manual') was first issued in 2005 and re-issued in 2007. The objective of the Manual is to: (i) explain corporate understanding of approaches and policies to grant management, (ii) provide details of grant management for day-to-day operational support; (iii) orient new staff members with a comprehensive overview of the Global Fund grant management process; and (iv) clarify roles, responsibilities and decision-making authorities.

During the past two years, eleven Global Fund specialist teams have updated sections of the Manual. These teams have also written new sections to include policies approved by the Board and policy or process gaps that have been identified by the Secretariat's in-house senior policy advisory group (Operational Policy Committee). This has created a manual that has different writing styles and different levels of detail for each policy or step in the grant management cycle.

To create a coherent and user-friendly Manual, the Office of the Director of Country Programs aims to re-issue the Manual (both printed and online versions). This version of the Manual will serve as the basis to write a similar Manual for implementers of Global Fund grants.


The Consultant will substantively edit, and in some cases, re-write, sections of the Manual by shortening, and streamlining in “Plain English” style. Special care should be taken not to lose substantive policy guidelines during the editing process.

The Consultant will work under the overall guidance of the Office of the Director of Country Programs [1]. Close interactions with subject matter experts will be required to ensure accuracy and to clarify policy questions.

The Manual currently comprises six parts. A total of 50 separate documents make up the Manual, totaling approximately 350 pages.


• Familiarize oneself with the previous versions of the Manual, Operational Policy Notes, and supporting documents.

• Edit and/or rewrite the current version of the Manual by simplifying the language and making it reader-friendly, and significantly reducing (by at least 50%) the number of pages.

• Circulate rewritten or edited drafts to relevant teams to ensure accuracy of contents

• Work closely with the Communications Team to develop a sound approach to the copy editing process

• Identify and recommend sections that need diagrams and flow charts


A staggered approach to the issuance of the Manual is envisaged. An indicative timeline for deliverables will be determined with the selected candidate.

• Detailed work plan and schedule of deliverables 3 days after start of assignment

• Final draft to be published online and print version by end of December 2008.


• Proven ability to write in “Plain English”

• Experience in editing and rewriting documents of similar scale and scope

• Ability to manage and prioritize complex workload

• Experience in journalism and web development advantageous
