Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $5,399,805 over three years to IRD Global to address organizational challenges through measures that include:
- Retaining consultants to support the development of effective strategy, business, and operating models.
- Hiring key staff, including a COO, a project manager, and a cost-effectiveness analysis team leader.
- Commissioning an ERP software system to increase operational efficiency and reduce financial risk.
The grant will also provide deficit relief, allowing IRD leadership to focus more time on strategy rather than reducing the deficit.
This grant was made on GiveWell’s recommendation. See GiveWell’s page on this grant for more details.
