Board Decisions


Approved by the Board on: 28 April 2006

Earlier Initiation of TRP Clarifications and LFA Assessments

The Board endorses the recommendation of the Policy and Strategy Committee, as part of the strategic issue of "Optimizing Grant Performance", that the Technical Review Panel (TRP) clarification and Local Fund Agent assessment processes begin prior to Board approval of the proposals submitted by the Country Coordinating Mechanisms ("CCMs"). The Board therefore requests the Portfolio Committee to recommend for approval to the Board specific conditions for the application of this decision in time for it to apply to the next round of proposals. These conditions shall include, but not be limited to, a statement to the CCM by the Secretariat that a TRP recommendation shall only result in the Global Fund awarding a grant if the recommendation is approved by the Board, which retains the sole authority to make such approvals.
