FFS is required to produce reports on quarterly basis (including annual reports at the end of each year) for its partners, in addition to donor-specific reports for UNDP to fulfil its contractual requirements while meeting the corporate quality standards. • Consolidated Reports: The consolidated reports enable the stabilization pillar to share with donors in a published document, the important work undertaken through the program, describe challenges and lessons learned, and serve as an important tool to inform policymakers of progress in Iraq on stabilization. • Donor Specific Reports: Several donors (Australia, Denmark, Germany, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, etc.) require regular written reports (quarterly, biannual and/or annual, as per each contribution agreement), while other major donors require ad hoc progress updates in various forms (including weekly updates with USAID). In other words, this means between 7 to 14 reports need to be prepared in a quarter. It is anticipated that the majority of 29 donors to FFS project will require final reports.
