Civil society partnerships

Concluding, suspension, and termination

Stage 4: CONCLUDING, SUSPENSION, TERMINATION

 

Final Meeting at the partnership’s conclusion

Upon completion of all programme document activities, a final meeting is held between UNICEF and the CSO partner to document achievements and lessons learned. UNICEF and the CSO partner discuss the sustainability of programme results, future plans and what do with any remaining cash, supplies or equipment. The primary responsibility is with the CSO to initiate the operational closure of activities.

Suspension or termination

Sometimes early termination of a partnership might need to be considered, due to unforeseen circumstances, organizational challenges, changing contexts, slow or no progress towards programme implementation, change in programme environment, breach of core value or other factors. For this reason, regular communication and monitoring measures should be put in place from the outset. Responsibility for corrective actions should be clearly assigned. The partners should make every effort to provide support to ensure that corrective actions are taken as effectively and efficiently as possible.

The suspension or termination of a programme document can take place without suspending/terminating all programme documents within the PCA. A notification period is required in each case.
