M&E Components of Grant-Making
The grant-making process is the translation of the funding request into disbursement-ready grants. Grant-making takes place after the review of the concept note by the Technical Review Panel (TRP) and Grant Approval Committee (GAC) and leads to a signed grant agreement following Global Fund Board approval.
There are three important M&E-related documents that are required during grant-making: Performance framework, M&E component of the Principal Recipient Capacity Assessment Tool (CAT), and the national (or grant-specific) M&E plan.
Many applicants in the funding model found that it was helpful to start work on their performance framework, CAT and M&E plan during the time needed for TRP and GAC review
