During the grant application process, funders can ask 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 Pre-Certification Assessment for one of these four tiers, based on the size and complexity of their organisation. This Pre-Certification 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.
