As a team of the unit I involved in the whole project cycle management process of the fund’s projects implemented by partners. The involvement started from providing inputs to clusters and working groups for prioritizing activities and locations recommended from previous project monitoring activities. I also involved in facilitating and attending Strategic review and technical review processes both for regular Standard allocations scheduled twice a year and Reserve allocations based on needs. As a team in the unit we develop monitoring plans based on the operational modality which is part of the Accountability Framework (Risk level of the partner, amount of budget allocated for the project and Duration of the project) for projects funded through these allocations. Review and clear project reports submitted from implementing partners either progress or final narrative reports are some of the tasks.
