Once a project is completed, the Recipient must submit a Final Project Report. The Final Project Report is a document used to provide an overall sense of the completed project, including the confirmation of project costs, actual achieved benefits, and environmental mitigation (if required). The Final Project Report must be submitted before payment can be received on the project’s final claim.
How do I get a Final Project Report?
The Final Project Report document is provided to you by your Project Officer at the CAMRIF Joint Secretariat. As a Recipient you only need advise your Project Officer that your project is complete and you are preparing to send in the final claim. Your Project Officer will then call up the Final Project Report and mail/email it to you.
What information does the Final Project Report include?
The Final Project Report is divided into two parts:
Part 1 - The first part is two pages long and is divided into five sections. Sections I and II include information on the project applicant and the project description. Section III outlines the estimated project benefits. Section IV contains information on the project timelines (project start and end dates). Section V deals with the project costs.
All of the baseline (originally provided estimated data) information will already be entered on the Final Project Report when it is sent to the Recipient. The Recipient is required to provide actual final data from the completed project, and in cases where the actual final data is different from the original estimated values, the Recipient is required to provide a brief explanation as to the cause of the difference.
Part 2 - The second part of the Final Project Report deals with the environmental requirements for the project. In this section, the applicant needs to indicate that the project was either excluded, or if it was not excluded that a report on the adherence to the required environmental mitigation is to be attached.
Prior to approval, every project is screened to assess potential adverse environmental impacts that may result from its construction and operation. If environmental mitigation steps are required prior to and/or during construction in order for the project to proceed, then the Recipient is made aware of these requirements through an Environmental Screening Report that is attached to the formal letter advising of Project Approval. When a project is completed, the Recipient is required to provide an environmental report describing the actual mitigation steps taken.
* Always ensure that the person responsible for overseeing the construction activity has a copy of the Environmental Screening Report, and that they understand that they must provide an environmental report at project completion.
** There are two signature/date blocks included on the Final Project Report, one at the end of each section. Both must be signed by an authorized signatory of the applicant.
