With this grant from the Freedom Fund, CPA is conducting a financial review of seven implementing partners located in Tamil Nadu, and supporting three partner organisations to strengthen internal controls. Furthermore, the capacity building needs of the implementing partners are being addressed through workshops on FCRA and internal controls, with the objective to enhance accountability and transparency in their financial system.
CPA will conduct follow-up visits with eight of the Freedom Fund’s partner organisations who have previously received capacity building assistance, in order to ascertain if previous recommendations from CPA are being effectively implemented. It will review the areas of financial management, governance, internal controls, legal compliances and grant management and utilisation. Based on its analysis, CPA will provide the organisations with support to fill any identified gaps and further improve their systems.
