  • 11. GAVI/VF 2006-07 Work Plan Framework

    • The presentation would have benefited from a more in depth progress report on the activities included in previous work plans.
    • The proposed work plan includes UNICEF activities in support of procurement and Trust Account management which had previously been funded through bilateral agreements between The Vaccine Fund and UNICEF. Therefore extension of contracts to relevant UNICEF employees depends on approval of relevant budget items.
    • The Board should only be responsible for reviewing overarching policies and directions. Granular budgetary matters should be taken up with more appropriate bodies such as the Executive Committee.


    The Board:

      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 Executive Committee.

      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.
