Natural and Cultural Heritage Fund (NCHF) Final Report template
This Final Report is a key component of the Natural and Cultural Heritage Fund’s Monitoring and Evaluation Framework and it is a condition of the Delivery Contract that this is completed.
The Final Report aims to summarise the impact the project has had to date and will enable the lead partner to comprehensively report to the Managing Authority. This report must be completed 1 month after project completion and will be followed by annual monitoring reports, starting 1 year after submission of this report and finishing in 2023. This is to ensure that projects demonstrate fully that outcomes have been achieved.
The Natural and Cultural Heritage Fund final report will include a summary of the monitoring of the project and includes both qualitative and quantitative information gathered from monitoring activities and achievement of milestones. The report will also outline the final outputs and describe how they contribute to the Outcomes and Horizontal Themes of the Fund.
The purpose of the Final Report is to obtain an overview and understanding of the impact the project has had to date. This will be achieved by;
- Confirming the final outputs deliver against the Horizontal Themes and Outcomes
- Reviewing the evidence gathered for the agreed Outcome Measures laid out in Monitoring and Evaluation Plan. This includes quantitative (counts, survey results) and qualitative information (photos, videos, testimonies).
Please refer to the Monitoring and Evaluation Guidance in your share file.
The Final Report and supporting documents will be subject to audit from bodies ranging from the European Commission and European Court of Auditors to the Scottish Government Audit Authority and Managing Authority.
