Fund Plus


Fund Plus is a modular framework which manages grant life cycles. It does not replace, or do the work, of a financial system but addresses a variety of management issues such as record keeping, compliance, organizing, checking, communicating and interfaces with a financial system.

Life Cycle of a Grant :

As a general rule, this life cycle is managed and reported on in two structures:

  • Funding motivation
  • Financial cost centres

From a funding point of view, reporting is structured according to donor funding and funding programs.

From a financial point of view, good practice and governance requires accounting by cost centre and beneficiary (creditor/debtor).

  • Management and control
