South Sudan Recovery Fund - Reports
South Sudan Recovery Fund - Templates
The South Sudan Recovery Fund - SSRF was established in May 2008 at the Sudan Consortium meeting in Oslo to support the provision of recovery assistance to South Sudan and bridge the gap between the short-term emergency/humanitarian aid and longer-term development assistance. Under the overall authority of SSRF Steering Committee, chaired by the Government of South Sudan (GoSS) and co-chaired by the UN Deputy Resident Coordinator, the SSRF is a pooled funding mechanism intended to channel funds to support GoSS recovery priorities and provide immediate benefits for the population while laying the foundation for sustainable development.
The SSRF will operate under the same governance arrangements as the Multi-Donor Trust Fund – South Sudan (MDTF-SS) administered by the World Bank and will complement it by ensuring that critical recovery needs are flagged and supported in a timely manner.
Priority programmes and projects of the SSRF will be implemented by a range of organizations such as UN Organizations, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), international and national Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).
Despite important achievements made in South Sudan since the signature of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in January 2005, the population’s expectations for greater stability, improved services and enhanced livelihoods opportunities remain high. International assistance delivered to South Sudan has mainly been either through humanitarian support or longer-term developmental programmes. Recognizing that there is a gap in medium-term recovery assistance, the Government of South Sudan (GoSS), the donor community and the UN have established the South Sudan Recovery Fund - SSRF.
The purpose of the SSRF is to support the timely allocation and disbursement of donor resources to activities that demonstrate quick recovery impacts and yield more immediate “peace dividends” for the population. These medium-term recovery initiatives will complement the longer-term institutional and infrastructural activities undertaken under the Multi-Donor Trust Fund – South Sudan (MDTF-SS) administered by the World Bank.
To ensure that recovery activities are clearly distinguished from humanitarian interventions on the one hand and longer-term development on the other, the SSRF has been designed with the following criteria:
Indicative early recovery activities that are eligible for SSRF funding are provided in the SSRF Terms of Reference.
The SSRF is administered by the Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in accordance with its financial regulations and rules.
Government of South Sudan (GoSS) Inter-ministerial Appraisal Committee (IMAC)
GoSS Budget Sector Working Groups
The Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) serves as the Administrative Agent (AA) and is responsible for concluding Standard Administrative Arrangements (SAAs) with donors and Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with Participating UN Organizations. It receives, administers and manages contributions from Donors. It disburses these funds to the Participating UN Organizations in accordance with the decisions of the SSRF Steering Committee. Finally, the AA prepares and submits consolidated financial reports, as well as financial statements on the SSRF account to the SSRF Steering Committee, for transmission to the GoSS and donors. The MPTF Office will delegate the AA responsibilities to the UNDP Country Office in South Sudan.
Proposal Review & Approval Process
Once approved by the Working Groups, the proposing organization(s) will proceed to develop a complete project proposal. The proposal is then submitted to the SSRF Technical Secretariat for compliance, quality assurance and clearance. Finally, the GoSS Inter-ministerial Appraisal Committee (IMAC) will review and approve the proposals, that will then be transmitted to the SSRF Steering Committee for consideration and instruction to the Administrative Agent (AA) for the transfer of funds to Participating UN Organizations (or Non-UN Participating Organizations). The AA makes disbursements within three (3) to five (5) business days after receipt of the instruction and appropriate documentation from the Steering Committee. Disbursements to NGOs is made through Participating UN Organizations (or Non-UN Participating Organizations) performing an additional oversight function.
Participating Organizations are required to submit final year-end expenditures by April 30 in the following year; Interim expenditure figures are submitted on a voluntary basis and therefore current year figures are not final until the year-end expenditures have been submitted.
