11 Disbursal Approved poll Site visit report Eval doc Completed checklist Follow-up Funds disbursal receipt Requirements

12 Copy of FCRA clearance certificate New Central Asha checklist requirement Audited Expense Report for previous year Expenses reports were not required to be audited earlier Proposal: Starting from 2011 funding year, all project expense reports submitted by project partners to AshaSV need to be audited. Benefits: Transparency in funds utilization Improves due diligence Issues Additional burden on project partners Chapter may need to support cost of getting expenses audited Auditing costs? Requirements (new)

13 Project co-ords will try to remind stewards to get site visits done and to schedule a slot in chapter meeting for project renewal presentation Vinod working on automating reminders to stewards Every month each steward receives 1 email at his/her personal email id. This email contains an auto-status of each project [last site visit, last update, when things are due, when to send next funds, etc.]. A consolidated version of this for all projects gets sent out on ashasv-projects group. The onus is as much on project stewards as it is on coords to ensure timely funds disbursals to projects Project stewards are expected to follow up with coords (projects and/or treasury) in case of delays and ensure that the funds disbursal process moves through the various stages Notes
