GUIDELINES FOR FINANCIAL REPORT

I. Introduction

To help you prepare your financial report, ACP provides a Financial Report Template. You are encouraged to update it regularly during the course of your project. The template should be filled in and submitted electronically. Your financial report should follow your approved grant Budget annexed to your Grant Agreement and should account for expenditures incurred during the project period covered. The various expenditure categories indicated in the approved Budget should be maintained during the implementation process of your project, and for all financial reporting.

If you are obliged to submit an interim report according to your grant contract, use this template for interim reporting. After your interim report has been approved by ACP, continue inserting expenses in the same–approved–financial chart until the end of the project.

1. Guidelines
2. Grantee Information Sheet
3. Summary Template

F. Marketing/Publicity
G. Overhead
