How is funding allocated, spent and monitored?
The schedule of deliverables, quality criteria and payment gateways set out in your Project Initiation Document (PID) forms the basis of your funding agreement with Ufi, and is used to monitor progress of the project. Ufi pays in arrears, and claims will only be paid after our Project Manager agrees that each deliverable has been achieved to the standard we expect.
Partners are not required to submit timesheets to draw down funding. However, they should be able to provide evidence of expenditure should Ufi or the Charities Commission choose to review or audit the project.
If a project can demonstrate a particular need for upfront funding to assist cashflow then this will be considered on a case by case basis through discussion with the Project Manager.
