Conservation Fund Interim Reporting
In accordance with the Contribution Agreement made between NIMMSA and the grant Recipient, the submission of an Interim Report mid-way through the project period is optional if the Recipient wishes to receive the remaining 50% of the grant amount prior to completion of the project and submission of a Final Report. This Interim Report does not negate the responsibility of the Recipient in their duty to submit a Final Report upon completion of the project but will contain important information to evaluate the progress of the project based on the following criteria:
• Project is actively moving forward with respect to the work plan.
• Timing of the project is on track and will be completed by the planned end date.
• Budget of the project is on par with the project plan and the appropriated funds.
• Methods and approach of the project are proving to be effective and continue to be in line with NIMMSA aims, scopes, values and standards.
• Deviations from project plan are reasonable and do not take away from the mission, objectives or quality of the project.
• Results reported (quantitative and anecdotal) thus far are measurable and demonstrate quality commitment to the project objectives.
