ABSTRACT Aidspan has removed from its website an alert concerning the quality of Global Fund grant data on the site. The problem was caused by the fact that the Global Fund had been providing erroneous data for grant agreement amounts and related fields on the grant pages of its website.
Aidspan has removed an alert on the portion of its website devoted to information on Global Fund grants. The alert had warned users to interpret the grant data with caution because the Global Fund had recently made changes to the grant data that it provided and because Aidspan needed some time to reflect these changes on its website.
On 10 July, GFO reported that the Global Fund was providing erroneous data for grant agreement amounts and related fields on the grant pages of its website. In that article, GFO reported that the Global Fund had recently implemented a new web services platform to correct the problem.
Aidspan is now satisfied that that the grant agreement and disbursement data on its website now match the data provided by the Global Fund on its new web services platform and, by extension, on the Fund’s grant pages.
