Are the administrative arrangements in order?
As we have noted in the introduction to this section, it is vital that adequate administrative arrangements are in place for the coalition to receive funds. Failure to have such mechanisms in place can be embarrassing and undermine donor confidence in the coalition effort.
- Who will receive the money? Are the bank account details included with the proposal or are you planning to resolve this later when a donor offers the money?
- If the coalition does not have a legal identity, who is legally responsible for any contracts agreed? What are implications for that organisation?
- What systems does the contracting organisation have to ensure adequate grant oversight?
- How will the wider coalition have oversight of expenditure?
