Questions received following the R4CR Information of 31 August – 3 September
The PIU clearly prefers umbrella organizations to submit an application on behalf of all its members. Thisdoes not mean that individual organizations cannot submit a proposal but the chances to succeed are lsslikely.
Nature of the audit:
We are currently still collecting information which audit instrument is the most feasible one for this first quick win round. So the exact nature of the audit will be communicated once we have adequate information.
Qualifications of the auditor:
All documents to be audited need to be performed by a registered and certified auditor in accordance with international audit standards.
Scope of Audit:
Auditing will focus on only those transactions that have been made under the current Quick Win project.
Timing of Audit:
The audit will be performed immediately after finalization of the project (in this case latest six months after contract signing) and completed maximum one month later.
No you cannot submit more than one project proposal per round of application. For this first quick win round you can only submit ONE proposal. In case an organization is involved in the submission of multiple proposals, ALL proposals will be considered ineligible.
Yes you can. This means that over the R4CR program period (2020-2024), you can theoretically submit 7 times a project proposal.
No this is not possible.
No this program is strictly intended for Civil Society Organizations (non-profit entities).
No, you are not eligible. In case you manage to register your organization, you can apply in one of the next rounds.
Clarification means that questions following the information sessions organized by the PIU and related to the first Quick Win round can be forwarded to the PIU (Project Implementation Unit, meaning the R4CR project management team) in writing. The PIU will answer these questions and publish the answers on the R4CR Website. From the point of view of transparency, questions and answers will be made visible to ALL potential applicants.
At this stage of the process your organization does not have to submit pro-forma notes or quotations. This will be the case once project implementation has started.
The maximum amount your organization can request for the first quick win round is US$ 50,000. However this does not mean that you always have to go for the maximum. Applications which include a budget that is below US$ 50,000 will be taken into consideration as well. For the second quick win round, to be organized at a later stage, the maximum amount will be again US$ 50,000.
