Cardno provides clients with a full range of public finance and fund management services, enabling donors to focus on their strategic goals, confident that their funds will be administered effectively.
Cardno’s performance-based payment approach ensures compliance with donor guidelines, a supportive structure for implementing partners, and helps counterparts achieve continuous funding for their programming. Our public finance and fund management services include:
- Establishing Operational and Financial Policies: Cardno uses best practices to establish financial policy guidelines, create tailored funds management manuals, design internal controls, and set up financial information systems.
- Ensuring Fiscal Accountability: Cardno acts as a trusted agent in carrying out all aspects of grants and financial management. We implement accounting and budgeting systems, apply internal controls and fraud protection mechanisms and provide reports to donors and/or recipients.
- Building Local Capacity: We assist donor organisations in identifying and selecting local grant recipients, including government institutions, non-governmental organisations and private sector firms. We then support these organisations to strengthen local networks and build sustainability.
- Monitoring and Evaluating Results: Cardno provides robust monitoring and evaluation services to ensure that funds are spent appropriately and that expected results are achieved.
