Steps of Grant Closure Process

The Global Fund maintains a differentiated approach, in which the Country Teams and the Principal Recipient (PR) can discuss whether the grant merits a full approach to closure, or a differentiated approach. Country Teams should differentiate in the following circumstances. For further information, the Global Fund Grant Closure Operational Policy Note provides the breakdown of this differentiation approach, including a sample template of the “Differentiated Grant-Closure Form” if this new approach is agreed upon.

Country Offices (COs) should include the UNDP Global Fund Finance Specialist (NY) in these discussions with the Global Fund.
