When assessing where an organisation is based, the UK Aid Match team look beyond legal registration to consider:
Where the organisation is controlled from;
The level of autonomy of different offices;
Who governs the organisation, relating to the financial management of the entity;
If there are significant ongoing operations based in the UK related to grant holder oversight and management of donor funded projects.
If successful, further verification in this area will be undertaken during full due diligence. The organisation implementing the project in the country of delivery must be registered with the appropriate body/bodies in that country.
