What is the purpose of the ATS
Networker?
   • Manage network
   • Monitor network development
   • Evaluate network
   • Plan to strengthen network
   • Monitor implementation of plan
   • Share information with counterparts
• Both the Data Source Tracking System
  and the ATS Data Tracker satisfy the
  mandate of F97 – Improving ATS Data
  and Information Systems
What is the purpose of today’s
 training on ATS Networker?

   • To assist project countries to complete ATS
     Networker
   • To assist project countries understand the
     value of using ATS Networker as a tool to
     monitor and develop their data collection
     networks
The rest of the day:

   • Fill in information for ATS Networker
   • Develop a plan to complete the
     information for ATS Networker
   • Assess what information is missing
   • Devise a simple strategy to develop your
     network
    Data Collection Networks:
          Assessment
• Four sources will be used to assess national data
  collection networks;
       • Data Source Tracking System entries
       • ATS Data Tracker entries
       • DAINAP
       • The table that was sent to you to complete
         (attachment #3)

• With this information, a preliminary assessment can
  be conducted on the extent and quality of your data
  collection network
     Data Collection Network
     Development Strategy:
• Based on the assessment, a preliminary
  development strategy can be formulated.
      A simple form will be passed out for you to
       complete, that will help guide you to devise a
       basic plan for the next steps in the
       development of your data collection networks

       When all countries have completed these
        forms, each country delegation will be given
        about five minutes to present their
        assessments and basic plan for network
        development.
In closing:
   • We will remain in touch with you to ensure that
     ATS Networker is completed by each country.
   • The Report Card method will be used to
     encourage countries to complete ATS
     Networker
   • Early next year F97 will produce a report to
     assess each country’s network based on
     DAINAP, ATS Networker, and the work
     conducted here today. The report will be an
     important step in making the 2006 workplans;
     the information will also be included in the next
     publication produced by F97 on the regional
     ATS situation.
