Reporting to Government

Government funding requires recipients to submit progress and final reports for accountability purposes. These are necessary but time consuming. They can also include too much detail which is not required by the funding body and subsequently blurs salient points. This leads to frustration and confidence issues within the funding body.

This program uses the requirements of the specific funding department and examples previously created in your organisation. Learn to present the right level of information and the best format in which to present it. Completing this program will reduce preparation time and increase report reliability.
