Most of the minimum requirements regarding CCM eligibility were adopted by the Global Fund in November 2004, a few months prior to the launch of Round 5.  Because of the short time between when the requirements were adopted and when Round 5 was launched, it appears that the Global Fund Secretariat did not rigorously enforce these requirements when screening Round 5 proposals.  However, the Global Fund Secretariat is unlikely to be as lenient when it screens proposals submitted for Round 6.  CCMs have now had about 18 months to implement the requirements since they were first adopted.  CCMs planning to submit Round 6 proposals would be well advised (a) to read the Clarifications document (see previous article) in order to familiarize themselves with the minimum requirements; and (b) to determine whether the CCM currently meets all of the requirements.  If the CCM does not meet all of the requirements, the CCM should take action immediately to correct any deficiencies.  In the event that the CCM is unable to meet one or more of the requirements by the time it submits its Round 6 proposal, the CCM should consider providing ample documentation (a) describing what actions are being taken to meet the requirements; (b) providing a timeline for the completion of these actions; and (c) demonstrating that the process is already well underway.

ABSTRACT When it screens proposals submitted for Round 6, the Global Fund Secretariat is unlikely to be as lenient regarding CCM requirements as it was in Round 5. CCMs have now had eighteen months to implement the requirements since they were first adopted.

Most of the minimum requirements regarding CCM eligibility were adopted by the Global Fund in November 2004, a few months prior to the launch of Round 5.  Because of the short time between when the requirements were adopted and when Round 5 was launched, it appears that the Global Fund Secretariat did not rigorously enforce these requirements when screening Round 5 proposals.

However, the Global Fund Secretariat is unlikely to be as lenient when it screens proposals submitted for Round 6.  CCMs have now had about 18 months to implement the requirements since they were first adopted.

CCMs planning to submit Round 6 proposals would be well advised (a) to read the Clarifications document (see previous article) in order to familiarize themselves with the minimum requirements; and (b) to determine whether the CCM currently meets all of the requirements.  If the CCM does not meet all of the requirements, the CCM should take action immediately to correct any deficiencies.  In the event that the CCM is unable to meet one or more of the requirements by the time it submits its Round 6 proposal, the CCM should consider providing ample documentation (a) describing what actions are being taken to meet the requirements; (b) providing a timeline for the completion of these actions; and (c) demonstrating that the process is already well underway.
