Claims Process Overview - Grantees with Projects
- The Managing Authority holds the approved ring-fenced Challenge Fund budgets and makes available for draw-down by the Lead Partner through the claims process.
- For projects where claim payments are made to Grantees, NatureScot as Lead Partner is effectively a conduit for cash. NatureScot only hold on to claim income relating to Management Costs.
- NatureScot as Lead Partner will not pay Grantees in advance of the cash being received from the Managing Authority – no cash risk to NatureScot.
- Maximum days to receive Managing Authority income once claim input onto EUMIS – 90 days per Offer of Grant Letters, but indicated as 4-6 weeks.
