Average Accelerated How Long Will it Take to Access Funds? • Up-to-date and costed national strategic plan or investment case with agreed priorities • Strong CCM and PRs that meet minimum standards Concept note writing TRP and GAC review Grant making 7 months 2 months 2 months From Board approval to 1st disbursement Time from dialogue to 1st disbursement 1.5 months* 1 month • Need time for country dialogue to agree on priorities and consult stakeholders • PRs and implementation arrangements are satisfactory 11 months 3 months Long Pre-concept note country dialogue 2 months 2 months 3 months* 1 month • Lack clear strategy or viable extension plan through grant period • Weak CCM and/or implementers • Weak technical partners in-country 17 months NSP development 8 months 3 months 2 months 3 months* 1 month Timing of concept note submission has to be aligned to one of the TRP / GAC windows Note: If there is no TRP scheduled in the month the concept note is submitted, the “TRP and GAC review” stage may take longer, up to 3 months * This is the anticipated average scenario – it may take longer in some countries.
