Arbitration procedure

Projects managed by the Sahara and Sahel Observatory are governed by rules and procedures that guarantee, on the one hand, the effective management of allocated funds and make financial operations more transparent, on the other. Grant agreements and consultancy contracts, service provision, acquisition of goods and equipment are subject to the principles, rules, and practices of international law.

To that end, OSS has adopted and implemented policies and procedures relating to the fight against fraud and corruption as well as a process for monitoring procurement plans and commitments. In addition, another procedure has been set up for a better monitoring of funds and grants management. In case of litigation and / or non-compliance with the Financing Agreement concluded between OSS and its beneficiary partners, an arbitration process is to be implemented in accordance with the present procedure.
