African Academy of Sciences
Senior Advisor
I am the Senior Advisor to the Good Financial Grant Practice (GFGP) Porgamme which is an innovative and integrated system to standardise, simplify and strengthen the governance of grant funding.
The GFGP system will consist of:
• A pan African, and ultimately global, standard for best practice in grant management.
• A web based self- assessment system to measure whether grantees’ financial management practices are in compliance to the GFGP standard.
• A searchable database of grantees’ assessments.
• A tiered certification scheme of Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum to cater for organisations and grants of any size.
The GFGP system will be of interest to any organisation making financial awards to recipients in low to middle income countries
