Reporting – PAO
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 directy supported 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.
Please download the reporting forms and instructions
The audit shall be carried out by an external, independent and qualified auditor.
Approved titles: Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Chartered Accountant (CA), or equivalent according to project country law. The audit shall be conducted in accordance with internationally accepted standards, ISA, issued by the International Federation of Accountant (IFAC). You can down load the “Handbook for International Standards on Auditing and Quality Control” here: ISA Handbook
This template includes both financial and narrative reporting of the first half of the project year. Focus should be on deviations from project plans (application and budget). A Mid-year report do not have to be audited.
Please send the Mid-year report by e-mail to your programme manager.
