Addressing M&E Gaps during Grant Implementation

If the funding gap is below the threshold for material budget change (see the section on 'Material budget changes' in the Global Fund Budgeting Guidelines), the Principal Recipient (PR) may use grant savings or re-allocate the fund to finance the identified M&E gaps. The PR should report the relevant budgetary changes in the following reporting period.

If the funding gap is above the threshold for material budget change, the PR may submit a request to the Global Fund Secretariat through the Local Fund Agent (LFA) on the reallocation of funds and/or reprogramming within existing grant agreements or use of savings. For details about the process of submitting and reviewing the PR’s request, please refer to the Global Fund Operational Policy Manual’s Operational Policy Note on Monitoring and Evaluation Systems Strengthening and Data Quality.
