Commission Decision of 12 June 2020 (C(2020)3759 final) imposes a new corporate model grant agreement (MGA) on all Commission services as from January 2021.

DG ECHO has worked intensively with the central services on adapting the corporate template to the needs of humanitarian actions

 

The humanitarian specificities are addressed in the Annex 5, which contains specific rules  on communication and visibility requirements and for carrying out an action.

 

The template can be used for both mono- and multibeneficiary grants. The latter represents the case in which DG ECHO funded actions are coordinated by a certified partner in consortium with other ECHO certified partners.

THE STRUCTURE OF THE HUMANITARIAN AID MODEL GRANT AGREEMENT

The structure of the HA MGA is as follows:

 

  • Data sheet = «specific» part of the agreeement

 

  • Chapters 1-6 «general» part of the agreement

 

  • Annex 1: Description of the action (e-Single Form)

 

  • Annex 2: Budget (corporate template adjusted)

 

  • Annex 3: Accession form for multibeneficiary’s action

 

  • Annex 4: Financial statement model

 

  • Annex 5: Specific rules for humanitarian aid operations

DURATION OF THE HA MGA

Please note that the HA MGA as published here is a result of several adjustments of the corporate MGA not only to the humanitarian aid specificities, but also to the possibilities of the current DG ECHO IT systems and internal procedures.

 

This version of the HA MGA will be used until the moment when DG ECHO on-boards the corporate e-grants system.
