Unicef Small Scale Funding Agreement
Formal partnerships that do not require a transfer of funds from UNICEF are governed by a Memorandum of Understanding. The programme is used to formalize agreements between UNICEF and one or more CSO partners, in order to pursue common goals at the global, regional or national level, with each party contributing its own resources. Softs are generally used to define strategic alliances and explain declarations of intent, areas of common interest, areas of cooperation and operational engagement.

Ratings: All partnerships with a budget of more than $100,000 require a HACT micro-assessment by a third-party financial company. The results are primarily used to identify associated vulnerabilities and risks, as well as to determine the modality of cash transfers (ies) and the frequency of insurance activities, in order to improve risk management.
Results should be included in the program document. Ideally, micro-assessments should be carried out before a partnership is concluded, otherwise the partner may take high risks until the evaluation is concluded.
