Consulting & Management


Sterling Swift currently runs the Field Support Services Project (FSSP) for the Canadian government in Pakistan. The FSSP provides support to the Government of Canada’s development assistance program in Pakistan. The aim of the FSSP is to provide access to local technical expertise, to provide support with sector research and policy analysis on issues identified by the Global Affairs Canada (GAC) development assistance program. Technical Specialists are tasked to provide high level technical advice, planning and monitoring of projects, review of project documents and to represent the government of Canada at high level meetings with government and social sector partners. Additionally, the Pakistan FSSP provides financial, administrative and logistical support to the government of Canada’s development program in Pakistan. This support from the FSSP helps ensure the program in Pakistan remains relevant and effective.
