Cabinet Office grant governance standards require grants to be reviewed at least annually, taking into account delivery across the period. This then results in a decision to continue, discontinue, amend funding levels or the scope of the Grant. A multi-year grant process would inhibit the outcomes of these reviews and commercial assurance processes from being implemented.

It is important that the Home Office ensures that the Recipient has managed the Grant in line with Government standards and that the Grant continues to represent value for money for the tax payer.
