The Board notes the reports of the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), in particular the OIG Report on Lessons Learned (TGF-OIG-09-002), and the Secretariat's response contained in such reports. The Board stresses the need to ensure that the response to the findings and recommendations of the OIG will be prioritized and fed into the overall planning and work of the Global Fund, including grant operations.
The Board notes that the Secretariat is responsible for monitoring and reporting on the progress made in following up on findings and recommendations of OIG reports to the Finance and Audit Committee (FAC). The OIG, in turn, separately provides assurance on the progress made to the FAC. The Board requests that these reports are provided to the Board at its 21st meeting and that the Secretariat also provides a report to the Board describing the process that is followed to address the findings and recommendations of the OIG reports, including (i) a description of the protocols on coordination between the OIG and the Secretariat and (ii) considerations on the roles of implementers, partners, CCMs and LFAs.
