Getting your house in order before a Global Fund OIG visit

English, French

In July 2012 the India Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) and the various Principal Recipients received notification from the OIG that a country audit would be conducted between September and November. Whilst India has been a recipient of Global Fund grants since 2003, this was to be the country’s first OIG audit.

Alliance India decided to carry out mock OIG audit visits to all six of its Sub Recipitants to introduce the OIG objectives and approach, as well as help the SRs prepare for the real OIG audit.

This case study describes the key lessons learned, and documents some practical and innovative practice around file management that will be of interest to other Global Fund recipients who may be preparing for a similar audit.
