  • much. However, the rest 18 SAIPs did not meet the deadline.

  • expense.
  • Ineligible costs like top-up was paid and reported as expense.
  • The amount listed in the invoice ledger doesn’t match with

Financial Reporting

  • It is important because the MA cant get fund from WB without submitting those report;
  • Timely reporting will also help us to avoid cash shortage;

MA received and review

MA sends it to HQ

Complies the reports and submit it with SOE

WB transfers the fund VNG HQ

SAIPs submit FR to MA




Cash available at HQ

VNG HQ transfers to SAIPs

VNG HQ transfers to SAIPs


Lesson Learnt from Q1 Report

Good internal control systems of SAIPs;

Good understanding on the financial templates and overall financial reporting requirements;

Willingness to take the comments of the MA;

Refresher training to the lead SAIPs and good improvement afterward;

Less supervision by the lead SAIPs;

Understanding gaps on the documentation requirements;

Improper use of the Financial Reporting Template(alteration or modification on the templates);

Less responsive and delay in submitting the revised reports after the MA comments – few organizations;

Understanding on the contingency and admin costs calculation and use;

Some adjustments on the Cash Forecast;



  • Highlights:
