Milestone reports and final report
You will need to submit a Milestone Reporting (formerly progress report) at the conclusion of each stage of works that aligns with your approved Work Plan. These will outline what you've achieved and what you'll do next.
Milestone reports are reviewed by technical experts who can ensure you're on the right track and give you feedback or advice. After your report is reviewed and accepted, we'll pay your next grant instalment.
When your project finishes, you'll have to submit a final report that says what it has achieved.
Trust Administration will direct you how to prepare your Milestone report in the Trust's Grant Management System closer to the time of reporting.
You must submit an updated and authorised financial report with all your progress reports. You also need to submit a certified financial report as a part of your final project report.
If you need to rearrange your project’s budget, you should apply for a budget variation.
Trust Administration will direct you how to prepare your financial report in the Trust's Grant Management System closer to the time of reporting.
You may also have to submit some other documents or evidence. They'll be listed in the grant agreement we send you.
Where to send reports
