Bond, A4ID & Bates Wells webinar: Understanding changes to UK Government grant agreements and contracts

Dates & Times

September 10 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Venue

In conjunction with Bond and A4ID, Leticia Jennings & Samara Lawrence will be leading this webinar to discuss the implications of the merger of DFID and the FCO on your organisations agreements.

As a result of the Covid-19 crisis the UK economy is expected to contract in coming months and the Gross National Income (GNI) is likely to drop and therefore so will the UK’s 0.7% contribution to Overseas Development Aid (ODA).  Earlier this month the UK foreign secretary Dominc Raab announced a £2.9bn package of cuts to the UK’s aid spending for 2020 as part of the ODA reducation process.  The UK Government have been through a review process of all their ODA programmes and made decisions of where they will cut or delay programmes.  DFID have said that they have already started to contact partners and suppliers to discuss the cuts to existing grants and contracts. 

The webinar will focus on: 

  1. Termination rights and mitigating losses 
  2. The extent to which NGOs are within their rights to resist on requests to alter the terms of the contract or grant agreement
