Interim Phone Calls will be arranged with your Grants & Learning Officer at an appropriate mid-point of your grant. The phone call is an opportunity to catch up about the progress of your project, your intended outcomes, and your monitoring and evaluation. It takes the place of a written report and normally lasts about 30 minutes.
Please note the questions below are for reference only to help you prepare for the phone call. You do not need to submit any responses to these questions as your Grants & Learning Officer will take notes during the phone call.
