This rapid, interim process is structured and timed to ensure the two CSO representatives are able to fully participate in the first Governing Board meeting, slated for September 8-9. The selected interim representatives will serve on the Governing Board for a period of approximately 6 months (Note: the exact timeframe of service for the interim CSO representatives will be determined in accordance with the Governing Board calendar and anticipated reshuffling of Board seats in April 2023). This consortium of groups will consult widely on the development of a process to take place in Q4 2022 or Q1 2023 to select two CSO representatives to serve a first full term on the Governing Board expected to begin in Q2 2023.

Selection Process Pandemic Action Network, CISDI, EANNASO, and the Platform for ACT-A Civil Society & Community Representatives will form a selection committee to ensure a geographic diversity of CSO perspectives and experience.
The selection committee will discuss and agree on an evaluation guidance.
The selection committee will conduct a rapid review of the applications for eligibility for each of the two seats and shortlist those candidates meeting them.
The committee will then meet to discuss and finalize its selections for the two interim CSO primary representatives, along with one alternate for each seat.
Interim selection committee members will not be eligible to be considered as interim CSO representatives.
The selection committee will notify nominees of the selections no later than September 7 at which time the names will be announced publicly.
Support for Interim CSO Representatives Pandemic Action Network, CISDI, EANNASO, and the Platform for ACT-A Civil Society & Community Representatives will provide technical and logistical support for the successful candidates in preparation and execution of their duties as interim Governing Board CSO primary representatives and alternates, including leveraging the PPR FIF official CSO consultations platform to solicit the views of CSOs around the world on matters coming before the Governing Board.
The global call for nominations and selection will adhere to transparency standards and avoidance of conflicts of interest. All relevant information, including the composition of the selection committee and the evaluation criteria it will observe, will soon be shared publicly on the Global Pandemic Fund Action Hub.
