Monitoring & Reporting of Financial and Programmatic Performance
Northern Sudan has been implementing the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) programmes since 2005 (malaria, Tuberculosis and two HIV/AIDS grants). The United nation Development Programme (UNDP) in Sudan is serving as Principle Recipient (PR) of these grants, with full responsibilities of managing the grants. The additional safe guard policy for GFATM, applies for Sudan, thus the field implementation of the grants is being done by Local and International non Government Organizations (NGOs), United Nation (UN) agencies as well as other possible recipients (academia & private sector). Capacity building and proper guideline on expenditure verification and reporting financial and programmatic performance requirements of the grants has been noted as one of major requirements for successful use of the grants by Sub Recipients (SRs). This toolkit is therefore developed as one of the modules of the Grants implementation manual. It’s intended to serve as a guide and resource tool to all SRs on all grant M&E requirements, reporting guidelines, research and documentation as well as expenditure verification, as well as programmatic performance verifications by PR and Local Fund Agent (LFA).
On the other hand, this toolkit is intended to:
- Strengthen the results-oriented monitoring and evaluation function and capacity building of Global Fund sub-recipients for the purpose of improving performance of projects, learning and accountability.
- Introduce simplified, streamlined and flexible approaches and tools to monitor progress towards Global Fund grants outcomes.
- Provide practical guidance to sub-recipients on monitoring and performance assessment
