Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs)

21 Nov 2004

At its June meeting, the board, led by developing-country government members, had rejected proposals by its Governance and Partnership committee that CCMs be "required" (as against merely recommended) to implement certain measures. That decision was strongly objected to at the Fund's Partnership Forum in July.

Global Fund Provides Details on Ineligible Round 4 Proposals

7 Jun 2004

Every Round 4 proposal that NGOs submitted direct to the Global Fund (that is, without CCM endorsement) was ruled ineligible by the Secretariat. Most, according to the Secretariat, had little technical merit. And the few that were strong did not make a legitimate case for bypassing their CCM. However, it is possible that some of those proposals were subsequently repackaged as part of proposals submitted by CCMs.


TRP Recommends Surprisingly Small Proportion of Round 4 Proposals for Approval

21 May 2004

Only one third of eligible Round 4 proposals, by dollar value, have been recommended by the Global Fund's Technical Review Panel (TRP) for approval. This low proportion, which will surprise many, is the same as applied in Round 3, and is less than the proportions that applied in Rounds 1 and 2.
