The UK Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) funds outstanding global health research through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The NIHR provided this funding through the UK Medical Research Council (MRC), which reports activities under the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The Good Financial Grant Practice (GFGP) is a programme established to strengthen Africa’s research and development infrastructure by developing an innovative standard for the best practices in the management of funds awarded to grantees. The NIHR's funding supported the phase II development of the GFGP standard and associated assessment tools, creating a new and integrated system for the financial governance of grant funds , including international aid, awarded to grantees which will standardise, simplify and strengthen the governance of grant funding.


1) The development of a web-based assessment system to enable pre-award and compliance assessments of grantees to the Good Financial Grant Practice (GFGP) standard. 2) The recruitment of a secretariat at the African Academy of Sciences (AAS) to manage and support the system.
