Approval of Round 8

  1. The Board approves, in principle, all the Round 8 proposals that were recommended for funding by the Technical Review Panel (TRP).
  2. The Board approves for funding for an initial two years those Round 8 proposals recommended for funding by the Technical Review Panel (TRP) as 'Category 1' and 'Category 2' with composite indices 8, 6, and 5, as listed in Annex 2 (Revision 2) to the Report of the Technical Review Panel and Secretariat on Round 8 Proposals (GF/B18/10), subject to Decision Point GF/B18/13 and paragraphs 4 to 5 below.
  3. The remaining Round 8 proposals recommended for funding by the TRP and identified as 'Category 2' proposals with composite index 3 and 'Category 2B' will be approved for funding for an initial two years (subject to Decision Point GF/B18/13 and paragraph 5 below):
    1. through Board confirmation by email (or, if appropriate, at the Nineteenth Board Meeting), as funds become available under the terms of the Comprehensive Funding Policy; and
    2. 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).

    In the interim, the Board requests the Secretariat to proceed with the TRP clarifications and the LFA assessments with respect to those proposals.

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 eight weeks after the applicant's receipt of notification in writing from the Secretariat of the Board's decision.
  5. The applicants whose proposals are recommended for funding as 'Category 2' (including the subset of proposals identified as 'Category 2B') shall:
    1. provide an initial detailed written response to the requested TRP clarifications and adjustments by not later than six weeks after receipt of notification in writing by the Secretariat to the applicant of this Board decision; and
    2. conclude the TRP clarifications process, as indicated by the written approval of the Chair and Vice Chair of the TRP, not later than three months from the Secretariat's receipt of the applicant's initial detailed response to the issues raised for clarification and/or adjustment.
  6. The Board declines to approve for funding those proposals recommended by the TRP as 'Category 3' proposals as indicated in Annex 2 in GF/B18/10. Such applicants may resubmit a revised version of the same proposal in Round 9.
