Aligned Reporting: Collaboration Case Note
By TAI
Print Page

This Collaboration Case Note describes TAI efforts to address the oftentimes burdensome reporting requirements that grantees face. TAI facilitated a working group of funder member program officers to compare reporting requirements across funders and identify a pilot cohort of grantee organizations for aligned reporting. This collaboration yielded a reduced reporting burden for one grantee organization and ongoing conversations with two others around aligned timelines, templates, and metrics for their respective reporting. While the participating funders general­ly have similar grantmaking principles and a shared desired to reduce the organizational burden for grantees, the flexibility of funder institutional processes var­ies widely. More time is needed to assess whether alignment will ultimately reduce the burden and strengthen the learning potential of grant reporting.
