The headquarters of OPC and its Regional Office for West Africa (ROWA) are in constant communication by email and Skype.

ROWA prepares a quarterly provisional schedule of activities used as a framework for monitoring projects. At the same pace, it addresses accounting "field" at headquarters, which is then controlled by the Programmes Directorate and Financial Management. Each supervision mission ROWA a program is subject to a report provided to the Programmes Directorate at Headquarters in Paris.
