11. GAVI/VF 2006-07 Work Plan Framework
11.1 Did not feel comfortable making a decision on
approving an indicative work plan budget that had not been fully vetted
by a smaller group that includes GAVI Board members, such as the GAVI
11.2 Requested that the work plan framework and budget
be more closely examined by the Executive Committees of GAVI and the
Vaccine Fund, for discussion at its joint meeting in September.
Recommendations from these discussions will be presented back to the
Board for ultimate decision on the work plan and budget in December.
11.3 Endorsed the proposal of the Vaccine Fund as the
single funding source for entire GAVI/VF work plan budget. This entails
the elimination of Board member dues.
11.4 Requested that due process be applied to the work plan development process to avoid any conflict of interest issues.
11.5 Raised no fundamental objections to an extension
of funding for UNICEF to continue its procurement and financial
management activities on behalf of the alliance in order to ensure
continuity in the supply chain of vaccines and funds management. More
specific information about UNICEF’s activities in these areas will be
required for the joint EC meeting in September.
