Why a Transparency & Accountability Policy?

  • Requirement of the Articles of Agreement

  • GAVI provides a significant amount of support in the form of cash.

  • Need to increase financial scrutiny of country programme implementation;

  • Need to ensure funds are managed as agreed in the approved proposals and in the most transparent manner : necessary to achieve PO

  • Sustains donors and public confidence that GAVI resources are used appropriately;

  • Provides a deterrent to fraud and corruption


Background

Background

  • Policy approved in June 2008; implementation plan approved in October 2008

  • Policy takes effect 1 January 2009

  • Covers ONLY cash-based support (HSS,ISS, Vaccine Introduction Grant);vaccines not affected

  • Goal: to limit fiduciary risk while maintaining flexibility for countries


Principles of the policy

Principles of the Policy

  • Built upon countries’ systems

  • Be consistent with the Paris Declaration, including the principle of mutual accountability

  • Apply a country-by-country approach; no “one size fits all” solution

  • Be based on minimum standards:

    • Funding used in accordance with programme objectives

    • Accurate and verifiable financial reports

    • Strengthened oversight and internal controls

    • Funds managed in accounts that meet national requirements

    • Funds subject to annual independent verification

How does GAVI implement the Policy?

  • Strengthened financial management sections in all new proposals and Annual Progress Reports (APR);

  • Financial management support by TAP to the monitoring IRC process

  • Keeping an early warning system – a modelling tool that allows GAVI to identify risks pre-emptively: System of country risk profiling developed by TAP and which is used to prioritize work on countries/programmes with a higher risk profile.

  • Financial management assessment (FMA)

  • Post-FMA Follow-up missions

  • Investigations for suspected or actual misuse of funds.


Financial management assessment fma

Financial Management Assessment (FMA)

  • Primary vehicle for the implementation of the TAP Policy.

  • Provides a baseline understanding of risks, with specific focus on mechanism for GAVI funds

  • Two stages:

    • Desk review (of existing assessments)

    • In-country review (varying levels of intensity)

  • FMAs will be conducted every 2 to 3 years depending on country risk profile and result of previous assessment.

  • 46 countries have been subject to an FMA to date.


Post fma follow up mission

Post-FMA Follow-up Mission

  • Based on agreed activity planning of Aide-memoire and any newrisk factor : obtain assurances that rules were followed, reports are reliable, and agreed actions are taken


Investigations

Investigations

  • A procedure for “situations that warrant attention” has been developed and is integrated to the TAP policy.

  • This procedure responds to suspected or actual misuse of funds.

  • The TAP Team investigates in full agreement with recipient countries, all situations that warrant attention.

  • To date, 5 investigations have been successfully conducted by GAVI, and misused funds have been fully repaid by 2 of the 5 countries, whilst the 3 other countries have committed to reimburse the misused funds.
