WORKING WITH DG ECHO AS AN NGO FPA
NON ESSENTIAL CHANGES
Non-essential changes are unilateral modifications of the Agreement.
They may include everything that is not listed in the amendment by mutual consent section. These changes include for instance, change in the headings and lines of the financial statement, change in the activities, etc.
The non-essential changes can be introduced in the interim report, or through a “Modification Request non-essential changes” .
To create this documente the partner should enter in Appel and follow this workflow.
Once submitted, it will show up as a Non-essential changes MR which becomes favourable immediately. ECHO does not have to give its approval to these changes, unless it realises that one of the changes introduced falls under the modification by mutual consent. (This may happen when modifying activities relating to cash or when modifying the monitoring section to introduce a remote management).
Clerical errors are unintentional additions, omissions or typographical errors made in the text of the Specific Grant Agreement.

The clerical error shall not affect the validity of the Specific Grant Agreement.
