December 2020 – Tanzania

What happened:

NCA Tanzania carried out financial monitoring visits to a local partner in Tanzania. During the visits transactions covering the period Jan – Dec 2013 and 2015 were reviewed.  Several irregularities were observed and documented.  

What did we do:

A proper investigation was conducted on the matter. Responses were collected from the partner and transactions amounting to NOK 337 340 remained undocumented and were treated as disallowed costs. The partnership was terminated and disallowed costs were repaid to NORAD.

What did we learn: 

Close follow up and supportive supervision to partners is required to ensure proper documentation and compliance to donor requirements.
