Approval of Round 6

1. The Board approves for funding for an initial two years, subject to paragraphs 3 and 4 below, the Round 6 proposals recommended for funding by the Technical Review Panel (TRP) and

a. listed in Annex 2, Rev. 2 to the Report of the TRP and Secretariat on Round 6 Proposals (GF/B14/10, Rev.1) as 'Category 1' and 'Category 2', and

b. listed in Annex 6[1] to GF/B14/10 as 'Category 2B' with Composite indices 8 and 6,

with the clear understanding that the grant amounts requested in such Annex for "2 Years" are upper ceilings subject to TRP clarifications and grant negotiations rather than final approved grant amounts.

2. The remaining Round 6 proposals recommended for funding by the TRP as 'Category 2B' and listed in Annex 6, to GF/B14/10, will be approved, subject to paragraph 4 below, through Board confirmation by email (or, if appropriate, at a Board meeting), as funds become available under the terms of the Comprehensive Funding Policy (GF/B7/2, p. 6), as amended at the Thirteenth Board meeting (GF/B14/2, p. 25-6) based on the composite ranking of such proposals in compliance with Board's decision entitled 'Prioritization in Resource Constrained Environments' (GF/B8/2, p. 13), but not later than 31 July 2007. In the interim, the Board requests the Secretariat to proceed with the TRP clarifications with respect to those proposals.

3. The applicants whose proposals are recommended for funding as 'Category 1' shall conclude the TRP clarifications process, as indicated by the written approval of the Chair and/or Vice Chair of the TRP, not later than four weeks after notification in writing by the Secretariat to the applicant of the Board's decision.

4. The applicants whose proposals are recommended for funding as 'Category 2' and 'Category 2B' shall:

a. provide an initial detailed written response to the requested TRP clarifications and adjustments by not later than six weeks after notification in writing by the Secretariat to the applicant of the Board's decision; and

b. conclude the TRP clarifications process, as indicated by the written approval of the Chair and Vice Chair of the TRP, not later than four months from the Secretariat's receipt of the applicant's initial detailed response to the issues raised for clarification and/or adjustment.

5. The Board declines to approve for funding those proposals categorized by the TRP as 'Category 3' as indicated in Annex 2 to GF/B14/10, although such applicants are encouraged to resubmit a proposal in a future funding round after major revision of such proposal.

6. The Board declines to approve for funding those proposals categorized by the TRP as 'Category 4' as indicated in Annex 2 to GF/B14/10.
