AUN team comprising of Dauda Audu (FAO Finance Manager) and Isiyaku Babayo departed for Maiduguri for a one day Training on Narrative and Financial reporting.
Date of Training: July 2nd 2018.
The training was declared opened by Head of Program Mr. Michel Oyat and called on all participants to pay careful attention to all segments of the training. He equally encouraged participant to ask questions as much as possible as this is an opportunity to clear all doubt that is baffling IPs concerning inception, Narrative and final reporting to be send to FAO.
Following the opening remarks, a group work was conducted on problems experienced during reporting (Narrative and Financial) and the outlined findings was presented to FAO facilitators.
Reporting/feedback on problems experienced was facilitated by Mr. Jordan, the FAO M&E specialist.
A reporting and communication requirements was facilitated by Patrina where she made a recommendation among other things that while doing a barner and sign post, FAO logo should be 30% larger than all IPs logo except if EU and EC are present in the visibility. She equally said a substantial amount was allocated for visibility and so IPs should make use of the funds to sell out the good work of FAO.
Detailed explanation on capturing outputs and reporting against targets (M&E) was facilitated by Mr. Jordan where he addressed all the clauses of the LOA (letter of agreement) from a start to the end thereby capturing all the required outputs and targets of the project.
Further, Anne Judith presented a brief but enough explanation on how to report crossing issues when writing a narrative and final report. While Grace gave a simple but articulate explanation on financial reporting. She equally entertained questions from IPs on budget and finance expenditures and retirements.
FAO is calling for IPs who has interest to work in the hard to reach areas of Abadam, Marte, Damasak, Ngamgai and Dikwa to send him an email as expression of interest to initiate agreement on the same.
