Organizational Structure and Policies
Board of Advisors
The Board of Advisors (BoA) represents a very important forum, particularly in terms of its advisory role in determining ITF's activities and future orientation. The BoA draws attention to matters important to the donors, and directs their desire and willingness to provide further assistance in relation to future ITF projects.
The Managing Board oversees the work of the ITF and ensures that the activities are implemented in a transparent and effective manner.
Headquarters with Representative / Implementation Offices
The ITF Headquarters (HQ) is responsible for the coordination of all ITF activities as well as for the financial management of donations. In addition, the HQ manages contracts and the awarding of contracts, carries out project reporting and evaluation, and organizes workshops, conferences and meetings. The HQ staff also performs monitoring and evaluation of operations in the field, on average twice per each project.
The ITF Representative / Implementation offices and ITF project managers facilitate ITF operations in the affected countries and enable efficient coordination with the national authorities and other relevant stakeholders to achieve better results as well as to ensure smooth implementation of ITF activities.
The HQ and the Representative / Implementation offices evaluate projects before they are put to 'Open Calls', carry out on-site supervision during the actual implementation and liaise with local donors. They are also involved in the technical evaluation of open calls for the projects executed by ITF.
