Projects shall be reported to the Palme Center twice annually: the mid-year report with focus on changes and deviations from Project plans, and the annual report describing results achieved and lessons learnt.

Reporting of projects

Both the mid-year report and the annual report consist of two parts:

  • Narrative report based on the approved application and results matrix
  • Financial report based on the approved budget

No audit is required of the mid-year report, but the annual report must always be audited. For more information about this, see the Audit paragraph below.

For partners supported directy by the Palme Center, the annual reports shall be handed in NO later than February 1st the following year.

There is no fixed deadline for mid-year progress reports, but we need to receive it before we can send you the last installment of project funds.
