Re-accreditation for ANCP

This grant round has now closed. Submissions closed at 5:00PM 18 January 2018 (AEDT).

This is the pro forma for completing an on-line application for accreditation with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and entry into the Australian NGO Cooperation Program. For further details about the accreditation process, please refer to the Australian NGO Accreditation Guidance Manual.

Australian NGOs are required to respond to questions or upload files as requested in the form.  A completed form provides DFAT with a profile of the organisation that can be assessed against specific criteria.  This application form is therefore the means by which an NGO presents all documentation relevant to the accreditation criteria and is the basis for a desk assessment.  Please take the time to preview the application form.

Many of the questions in the form are mandatory, i.e some fields require entries.  Fields that are not completed will result in the submission being rejected. This is to ensure that NGOs provide all the necessary information to enable an assessment of the NGO against the accreditation criteria. NGOs are encouraged to refer to the guidance throughout this form when responding to questions. NGOs will not be able to submit their Agency Profile until all required fields are completed.

This organisation profile can be saved at any time and you can go back to any part of the profile to edit responses at any time. This profile will be active for 12 months. Once the organisation profile is submitted no further changes can be made.
