Details

The British High Commission’s Post Project Budget is aimed at projects that will improve bilateral links between Uganda and the UK and support the UK’s Foreign Policy Priorities in Uganda.

Our priority areas for project funding this year are:

  • Strengthening the rules-based international system (including institutions) – Ending Sexual Violence in Conflict
  • Human Rights & Democracy - minority rights
  • Any strong projects which support UK Foreign Policy Priorities other than mentioned above will be considered.

How much money is available for funding?

The budget for this financial year is UGX 697,226,049

All project budgets must be presented in Uganda Shillings. Projects should have a clear purpose, demonstrate realistic outputs and represent value for money. All project activities must be completed by March 2019.

What will the BHC Projects Budget not fund?

  • School fees, research or base line studies.
  • Core running costs, (e.g. salaries, utilities, rent, transport, etc).
  • Private commercial businesses, (e.g. piggeries, poultry and other similar ventures)
  • Micro-finance / loan schemes.

Please do NOT apply for funding for any of the above.

Reporting and Monitoring

Once a project concept has been approved a full project bid form should be completed making a case for the funding of the project. The bid form should contain documentary evidence of any assertions made by the implementers about the intended area of work. Periodic reports will be required from all funded projects and should include full financial accounts for the money used. Original receipts must be submitted for any project expenditure. Physical checks will be made on all on going projects. We expect 70% spend by end of October, 90% spend by December and 100% spend by end of February. A completion report will be required usually within one month of the end of the project. Final payments will only be made after this has been submitted and approved.

NOTE: Money is paid out three months in arrears after verification of receipts and expenses. Implementers are therefore expected to deliver activities and claim reimbursement every three months.

When to apply:

The British High Commission will receive applications from 20 April to 07 May 2018. Organisations may apply for funding in the subsequent months but this will depend on how much allocation is unused. All projects are annual, to be delivered within our Financial year (April 2018 to March 2019)

How to apply:

All bids should be filled out on a project concept form which can be found here. Completed forms should be emailed in soft copy to Leah.Sepuya@fco.gov.uk.
