Lump Sum Grant (LSG) Subvention System

Lump Sum Grant Subvention System (LSGSS) is to enhance efficiency and effectiveness, improve quality, encourage innovation, strengthen accountability and provide flexibility, with a view to deploying resources in the most cost-effective manner to meet changing needs in the community. The Lump Sum Grant (LSG) arrangements were introduced in 2000-01 for voluntary adoption by non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Under LSG, NGO management have autonomy and flexibility in the deployment of subvention resources to meet the service needs.

As at 1 August 2018, 164 out of the 169 subvented NGOs have joined LSG system and the subvention for these NGOs represents over 99% of the total recurrent subvention for 2017-18.
