Le Secrétariat a fait le point sur le financement d’encouragement octroyé au Nigeria et à l’Inde dans le cadre des allocations 2014/2016. Cette mise à jour figure dans le dernier rapport du Comité d’approbation des subventions au Conseil d’administration.
The Secretariat has reported on developments concerning incentive funding awarded to Nigeria and India as part of the 2014-2016 allocations. The updates were contained in the latest report of the Grant Approvals Committee to the Board.
Le 4 août 2017, le Nigeria a été informé que sa demande de financement pour la lutte conjointe contre le VIH et la tuberculose – déposée le 28 mai 2017 – n’était pas invitée à passer au stade de l’établissement de la subvention. Le Comité technique d’examen des propositions a recommandé qu’une version révisée soit préparée.
On 4 August 2017, Nigeria was notified that its TB/HIV funding request – submitted on 28 May 2017 – was not invited to proceed to grant-making. The Technical Review Panel (TRP) recommended a further iteration of the funding request. This means that the country must re-work and resubmit its funding request, addressing the TRP’s concerns. The country will resubmit its funding request in Window 4 on 7 February 2018.
A 2016 audit report on grants to Nigeria spelled out seven agreed management actions, or AMAs, which the Secretariat agreed to undertake to address the problems highlighted by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG). Recently, Aidspan received an update on the status of the AMAs from Mark Edington, Head of the Grant Management Division (GMD) and his colleagues.
As reported in a separate article in this issue, among the funding from the 2014-2016 allocations awarded by the Board in December, $40.5 million went to six grants from five components and countries that have not previous received funding. See the table for details.
