Summary of Changes/Comments
December 31, 2020 - The Managing Partnerships policy is now available in Spanish. To access the document, click on the Spanish language tab.

August 27, 2018 - The Managing Partnerships policy is now available in French. To access the document, click on the French language tab.

May 2017 - Aligned with new Delegation of Authority policy (2017): The Partner Review Group (PRG) as established in 2008 has been abolished. Previously there were three segments on partnership section, consisting of civil society (published in 2010); foundations (2010), and the private sector (2009). The review was taken place to distinguish prescriptive content (requirement) from recommendations or descriptions. The content is now streamlined to be one policy document called “Managing Partnerships” encompassing elements of civil society, foundations and private sector.

March 28, 2017 - The updated policy clarifies the implementation process of partnerships instruments (MoUs and financing). In addition, updated hyperlinks are on the intranet resources pages.
