6.4 Termination

Termination can be initiated by either party, usually as a last resort for irreconcilable differences, a prolonged project suspension for reasons like insecurity, or termination of donor funding. All terminations must be governed by contracts. Key issues include:

  • Both partners should know the reasons for termination-refer to the problems and the contract conditions that justify termination for these reasons.
  • People or organisations that will be affected (beneficiaries, government, donors, etc.) should be informed-be professional and sensitive about how
  • Partners should be given a set period to settle accounts and return equipment-this should be regulated by the termination clause of a contract.
