These guidelines have been prepared to supplement the Grant Agreement by providing an explanation of the accounting policies, financial reporting and budgeting requirements. However, in the event a conflict arises between these guidelines and the Grant Agreement, the latter takes precedence.
The main objectives of this document are:
- To provide a quick reference and easy-to-follow guide for beneficiaries of EDCTP funding;
- To ensure consistency in the financial management of EDCTP grants;
- To act as a reference document for external auditors and other stakeholders in carrying out financial audits or other reviews of EDCTP-funded projects.
