The following IRC Review modalities are provided for background reference, but these remain subject to final adjustment:
Pre-IRC Review (15 May - 10 July 2012):
During IRC Review (11 – 27 July 2012)
On the afternoon of Day 0, IRC reviewers are to read the assigned APR, write the draft report, and recommend funding decisions in word format. It is expected that each reviewer is to work independently and comes to his/her own conclusion. For reference, each APR will be assigned to two IRC reviewers. Newly recruited reviewers will be paired with experienced reviewers.
On the morning of Day 1, each IRC reviewer is to present his/her draft reports (the report is directly projected on the screen) to IRC plenary session. Then a plenary discussion is to take place. Any points of clarification will be followed up by the GAVI Secretariat, namely Country Responsible Officers in liaison with countries.
On the afternoon of Day 1, for each APR reviewed in the plenary session, the designated 1st IRC reviewer is to integrate IRC plenary discussion into the final IRC country reports, then submit the final report. In addition, each IRC reviewer is to read the assigned APR and prepare the draft report for presentation at the Day 2 plenary session.
There is an estimated total of 10 review days, covering approximately 70 APRs
All IRC Reviewers are expected to actively engage in the plenary discussion in English
After IRC Review
The GAVI Secretariat in liaison with GAVI Alliance Partners is to develop a management response to IRC Recommendations after receipt of the final Monitoring IRC Report.
