Ifa working group is denied authorization for funding from FAWG, it may ask FAWG to reconsider its decision. If upon reconsideration, FAWG again determines that the working group does not meet the minimum requirements, as stated above, the working group may bring its proposal for funding authorization directly to General Assembly.Oncea Working Group has been authorized for funding, actual requests for funding should follow the Cash Disbursement Policy and Procedure. Members of FAWG will sign up for all Working Group email lists to be able to monitor Working Group development and activities.FAWG suggests that each Working Groups that is authorized for funding send a liaison to at least one FAWG meeting per month.* WG liaisons to FAWG are simply the messengers and the WG assigned purchasing agents. Decisions on any monies to be spent are made at the WG level.
