Year - 2000 - 2015
Client - Department for International Development (DFID), UK
In 2010, our wholly owned subsidiary IPE Triple Line partnered with Crown Agents in a joint venture to manage the £140 million Global Poverty Action Fund (GPAF) portfolio that, at its peak, supported 142 organisations delivering 182 projects in 36 countries. The Fund aims to improve the lives of poor people by supporting civil society organisations to implement projects focused on poverty reduction and the achievements of off-track Millennium Development Goals. Focus areas include health, education, livelihoods, environment and capacity building.
IPE Triple Line's team of experts has a deep understanding of key international development issues - education, health, violence against women, gender equality, water and sanitation, income generation, access to justice and social accountability processes. Our knowledge allows us to provide technical guidance and advisory services that support the organisations and their implementing partners in delivering projects to high standards. This is strengthened by a long-standing relationship with civil society organisations in the UK and overseas which enables us to understand the issues and challenges they face and we are able to provide an expert and proactive service that ensures there is continuous capacity strengthening to enhance financial accountability.
We have managed the fund efficiently and smoothly, providing DFID with assurance over the distribution and use of over £140 million of public funds and receiving very positive feedback from grant holders about the service and support we provide.
