Corporate TB Pledge

Tier Graduation

Corporates sign up at specific levels of commitment initially. In case the corporate exceeds expectations (associated to the level of commitment they have signed up), technical evaluation is done and the process of graduating tier takes place. This will be done offline by the secretariat, however, the system should indicate the process and the way to graduate to the next tier in a creative and repetitive way to the corporates. As of now, 4 corporates have graduated tiers, based on their performance. Fresh Pledge is signed and submitted once a corporate has graduated tier.
