Follow-up Review Rating Criteria
The following criteria was developed by OAIS and used to assess the level of progress achieved by Management in addressing the issues raised in the report on the audit of the Global and Regional Programme (GRP), in the design and first year of implementation of the Global and Regional Interventions (GRI).

Rating Criteria – Definition

Significant progress achieved – Issues identified in the GRP audit have been substantially addressed by Management; Areas for improvement reflect potential for refinement going forward. 

Progress achieved – Evidence of efforts undertaken to address issues identified in the GRP audit, but full benefits not yet realized; Medium to low risks remain that need to be monitored or addressed in the remaining programme period. 

Limited progress achieved – Evidence of efforts undertaken to address issues identified in the GRP audit but benefits not yet realized; Medium to high risks remain that need to be addressed in the remaining programme period to prevent issues that could affect the achievement of the objectives of the GRI.  

No progress achieved - No progress made in addressing issues identified by the GRP audit; resulting risks could affect the achievement of the objectives of the GRI.

Implementation Rate
Implementation rate (% IR*): The implementation rate reflects the progress made in addressing the issues raised by the audit. The implementation rate per audit report is first displayed three months after the report's public disclosure, or the closest date to the recommendation follow-up completed by OAIS; rates are periodically updated following OAIS reviews. Audit recommendations are normally expected to be implemented within 18 months. A list of audit recommendations that are outstanding for 18 months or more is included in the OAIS annual report to the Executive Board on audit and investigations. An audit recommendation that remains outstanding more than 18 months is typically one that requires structural adjustments or that is outside the direct control of UNFPA.
