6.2 Status of funding portfolio and cash budgets

All fund allocations, grants and contracts available for programming must be listed in the Funding Portfolio Matrix (Annex 17.10) by programme sector and by Project Number (PN) and subsequently a Cash Budget Form (Annex 17.2) that indicates:

  • the amounts available for expenditure
  • funding timeline-effective start and end date
  • expected rates of expenditure-by when does the bulk of expenditure need to be incurred?

These calculations must be made for each fund code and must be prepared by the Country Office/Head Office Finance Department, reviewed by the CO Leadership Team and approved by the Country Director. In addition, cash budgets must be officially communicated to the Team Leader, Emergency Managers, and support departments such as Human Resources and Procurement.
