During early 1977, USAID/CAIRO engaged Dor. Huston and two UW/ISC staff members, Mr. Weckel and Mr. Falk, as consultants. The purpose of this engagement was to prepare technical specifications and submit procurement plans for scientific instruments, apparatus, and equipment required for the National Research Center in Cairo. More than 2 man months were spent in Cairo and 2 man months in Wisconsin in performing these tasks. Mr. Falk made 2 additional trips to Cairo in August 1977 and December 1978 in performing work ancillary to the earlier assignments. The outcome of this engagement was the initiation of procurement for about two million dollars worth of equipment. In the course of these interactions a detailed familiarity was obtained with the NRC and SIC facilities and a close rapport was established with the Egyptian managers, scientists and engineers associated with them. Another program detailing with the development of maintenance and repair programs within the Egyptian scientific community was undertaken under NSF sponsorship in 1978.
