What are contract awards?

Many members new to development funding ask what our funding reports include, and what the difference is between them.

Contract awards and shortlists include information on projects that have been awarded to particular organizations, or organizations that may be shortlisted to be awarded the project. Generally the information on the project is brief, and the report refers to the project title, location, funder and amount. This information is often used by members to discover potential partners and competitors, as you can easily identify who has worked with which donors in particular regions, and on specific topics.
