Part of the conditions of the award letter will be that the Lead Organisation provides regular project progress reports to the Improvement Fund team and participates in regular calls to review progress. We will agree the reporting timescales with the project team. Timescales will be in line with each phased payment so that we are assured the project is progressing as expected before we process payments. Progress reports will also be proportionate to the level of funding provided.

Please note that we may request timesheets and proof of spend such as receipts so that we can assess whether reported actual spend is justified.
