Lottery funding under scrutiny
Johannesburg - The funding practices of the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund and the National Development Agency (NDA) will be under scrutiny in a report to be released on Wednesday, the Funding Practice Alliance (FPA) said.
"The research project was initiated from a position of ongoing concern over a period of years about the impact of the funding practices of these bodies on the many organisations reliant on their grants," said spokesperson James Taylor on Tuesday.
He said the report, entitled Meeting their Mandates?, will explore the extent to which the agencies are addressing the country's development challenges.
The report is the product of year-long research commissioned by the FPA, Taylor said.
He said the report contained information drawn from a number of stakeholders, including the National Lottery Board and former NDA board members.
