Reporting and Monitoring

Once a project concept has been approved we will ask you to complete a full proposal 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 ongoing projects. We expect 50% spend by end of October, 70% 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 01 March – 15 March 2017. All projects are annual, to be delivered within our Financial year (April 2017 to March 2018)

How to apply:

All bids should be filled out on a project concept form. All relevant forms are attached above. Completed forms should be emailed in soft copy to Leah.Sepuya@fco.gov.uk.
