Trans-SEC uses a system of intra- and inter-organisational development among hierarchies, regions and all stakeholders. It aims to combine input/output flows amongst partners by a) a central coordination (ZALF) and b) a Tanzanian sub-coordination (SUA) for operational management and synthesis. Standard information on administrative and risk management tasks are managed using a "knowledge centre" on the internal webpage area. ZALF and SUA each coordinate their national partner cluster. SUA, ARI, ACT and TFCinvolve stakeholders at regional and national level of public authorities and ministries. The MVIWATA also involve local stakeholders and will disseminate Trans-SEC results to farmer associations and schools as well as cooperative societies. The WP leaders are responsible for in-time delivery of results. The two CGIAR centres operate on specific research tasks and support the tasks with their excellent infrastructure. Progress and process control through supervision ensures continuous improvement and maximises effectiveness and communication. Annual meetings and reporting to PTJ/BMBF/BMZ ensure transparency and traceability of the project progress.

A Project Steering Committee (PSC) with the leaders of all WPs ensures representation, in-depth scientific knowledge and management of the whole project. The PSC is the leading group and the decision-making body of the project. It works closely with the ZALF coordinators on all strategic decisions regarding the work.
