During the grant application process, funders can ask GGC grant receivers to provide an assessment of their ability to comply with one of four tiers of the new global GFGP Standard: bronze, silver, gold or platinum, based on funding complexity and grant receiver size.
Grant receivers can complete a GFGP Certification Readiness Assessment for one of these four tiers, based on the size and complexity of their organisation. This assessment report then appears on a searchable database used by funders looking to award grants.
Typically, the bronze tier would be right for a CSO or CBO working in a single region or city, handling a few small funding grants each year. Silver tier would be relevant for an NGO that manages a greater number of larger grants in one or more countries; and gold would apply to larger INGOs or Research Institutes managing significant funding grants at a continental or International level, involving sub awarding of grants. Finally, platinum will be right for the largest funding awards given to global INGOs and international Institutes conducting global activities.
