Fact Sheets from the Research Report on the NLDTF and the NDA
Meeting their Mandates?
In 2010, the Funding Practice Alliance commissioned a research study to inform future activities and campaigns which promote more effective relationships between the National Lotteries Board and the National Development Agency (NDA), on one hand, and the civil society sector on the other hand.
The key assumption was that neither the NDA nor the NLB were meeting their legislated mandates with respect to grantmaking, support to NPOs, and impacting measurably on development. The research concluded that there is a lack of accountability and transparency over the way the distribution agencies operate and they need to be called to account for their failure to fulfil their mandates to distribute funds appropriately to non-profit organisations and charities.
