Crown Agents is a trusted partner in managing development assistance from donors and governments. This is due to our ability to deliver results through effective and efficient programme management, appropriate oversight of grant recipients, and clear and timely communication with stakeholders, all within a framework of transparency and accountability. Strong oversight and accountability of all disbursements are the foundation of our financial management within grant programmes. Crown Agents Bank provides added value by providing transparent and independent account management and reporting to clients, donors, managing consultants and aid recipients, including work with Global Fund recipients.
Our support to finance and grant management in the health sector has included assisting national entities to setup and manage grant programmes. For example, we supported the Lesotho National AIDS Commission by developing programme budgets, establishing a transparent grant mechanism, evaluating project proposals, establishing fiduciary safeguards, disbursement of funds, and monitoring and evaluation of outcomes and impact.
