The average turnaround time for NGOsource to complete an ED is 4 to 6 weeks. This time is primarily determined by the responsiveness of the NGO, which varies widely.
As part of our streamlined and legally compliant ED process, we ask grantmakers to introduce their intended grantees to NGOsource. Subsequent determinations of NGOs that have been previously certified by NGOsource take significantly less time. In contrast, our research indicates that the average ED processing time using resources besides NGOsource ranges from several weeks to a few months.
