Five AMAs to address the findings of an OIG audit into the Global Fund’s management of grants in high-risk environments
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.
For the first 10 months or so of 2017, 91 agreed management actions (AMAs) were closed and 73 new ones were opened. As of 10 October 2016, there were 17 long overdue AMAs (defined as being more than 180 days late).
AMAs are actions that the Secretariat has agreed to implement following discussions with the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) about problems identified in OIG audits and investigations.
