FCS aspires to ensure value for money with its grantees

The Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) Executive Director, Mr. Francis Kiwanga has appealed to all civil society organisations (CSOs) working with the FCS in Tanzania to ensure that they abide with the value for money discourse as well as integrity while implementing their projects.

Speaking at the closing ceremony of the two-day CSOs Annual Forum organised by the FCS in Dar es Salaam on 2 December, Mr. Kiwanga said the FCS for its part will not tolerate any of its grantees found to be involved with any allegedly misuse of donor funds.

“We are at a point where we will not negotiate with any kind of grants’ abuse. Our recent grantees audit exercise has shown that we have a few grantees appearing to be involved with misuse of funds. You are either with us or against us,” he said.

He also urged the grantees to abide with the speed that the new Tanzanian government is taking in a bid to combat all types of corrupt practices.

“We support our current government spirit of accountability as also enshrined in our core FCS values. We want to see every grant provided to grantees is used accordingly. Gone are the days when we heard of stories that some CSOs were not good enough in the implementation of projects such as the Rapid Funding Envelop on HIV/Aids and the likes. We as FCS, will tighten our controls even harder,” promised Mr Kiwanga, while closing the CSOs annual forum in Dar es Salaam.

The CSOs annual forum had brought together over 250 representatives from Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), scholars, government representatives, development partners, and members of the private sector from around the country to share and exchange experiences and ideas around “The Role of CSOs in effective implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
