Sub-recipients assist LCN to implement portions of the
implementation framework for the Global Fund Round 8 grant.
This includes program activities aimed at specific target
groups (youth, for example) or at specific sectors (the
private sector, for example). Sub-recipients must pass
rigorous assessment criteria and sign detailed
accountability agreements with LCN. Sub-recipients may
identify implementing partners and provide them with funding
support in order to carry out the activities they have
contracted to undertake. Sub-recipients are usually very
well established, nationally-based organizations with
experience implementing large programs involving a number of
different partners. Sub-recipients may be national or
international organizations operating in Lesotho.
Sub-recipients must be legally registered to operate in
Lesotho and have legal capacity to enter into funding
contracts. Because of the particular relationships
Sub-recipients have with the PR, policies and procedures
applying to this relationship are detailed in a separate
Implementing partners are community-based organizations, or
district or nationally-based organizations, which have
applied for and been awarded funding under the different
grants management programs at LCN. Implementing partners
must be legally registered entities with legal capacity to
sign funding agreements.
Depending on the terms of the grant program, or of the donor
where the funds originate, LCN may provide grants to groups
or associations that are not legally registered. In most
cases, such groups will be required to enter into a
partnership with a legally-registered entity to be eligible
to receive funding support. The legally-registered entity
will be required to co-sign the funding agreement.
