Sample Vital Registration with Verbal Autopsy (SAVVY) is a library of best practice methods for improving the quality of vital statistics where high coverage of civil registration and/or good cause of death data are not available. This manual describes the roles and responsibilities of the field office manager — a senior district official who will be responsible for managing operations of the SAVVY system at the district/province level. This manual specifies the procedures to be used during the recruitment and training of various positions, and highlights the supervisory and administrative arrangements that need to be made and implemented before, during, and after data collection.
