Revisions to the Terms of Reference of the Technical Review Panel (TRP)
The Board delegates to the Portfolio and Implementation Committee the authority to update the Terms of Reference of the TRP to:
i. reflect the Global Fund‟s Policy on Eligibility Criteria, Counterpart Financing Requirements, and Prioritization of Proposals for Funding from the Global Fund approved at the Twenty-Third Board Meeting.
ii. incorporate value for money principles, clarify language for applicants and eliminate duplications in the review criteria for proposals (Attachment 1 of the Terms of Reference); and
iii. adjust for recommendation categories as specified in the Periodic Reviews and Commitments Policy (Report of the PSC, GF/B20/4 Revision 2, Annex 2a) and other non-material items.
The revised Terms of Reference will enter into force after the Portfolio and Implementation Committee‟s approval on or about 1 July 2011.
The Board requests the Portfolio and Implementation Committee to notify the Board of the approved version.
This decision does not have material budgetary implications for the 2011 Operating Expenses Budget.
