Aidspan has released a seven-page question and answer sheet (Q&A) on "Grant Consolidation and the Single Stream of Funding." The purpose of the Q&A is to provide a basic understanding of the concepts of grant consolidation and the single stream of funding, and of how Global Fund applicants and implementers will be affected.
The Q&A is available in English at www.aidspan.org/aidspanpublications. French-, Spanish- and Russian-language versions should be posted by early August.
The Q&A is designed to complement documents on the new grant architecture already released by the Global Fund. These documents are as follows:
" New Grant Architecture " Concept Note
" Fact Sheet for Implementers
" New Global Fund Grant Architecture: Frequently Asked Questions
" Single Stream of Funding Consolidated Performance Framework (for use in Round 10 proposals)
The Global Fund documents are available in several languages at www.theglobalfund.org/en/grantarchitecture. Questions about the new grant architecture can be submitted to the Global Fund Secretariat at ARCinbox@theglobalfund.org.
