Financial Value of Provided Voucher Assistance
INDICATOR PHRASING: total financial value (in GBP) of the provided voucher assistance
What is its purpose?
The indicator measures the total financial value (in British pounds) of the vouchers-based assistance provided to the project beneficiaries. The amount should not include any staff, logistics or other costs related to providing this assistance. This indicator is mandatory for all projects providing vouchers-based assistance.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
Determine the indicator’s value by using the following methodology:
1) Request relevant finance and project staff to provide evidence of the financial value of the vouchers-based assistance provided as a part of the project. This can include, for example, distribution lists, bank statements, reports / invoices of participating traders and other relevant documentation. Do not count the value of vouchers that were provided but which the beneficiaries did not use.
2) Use available post-distribution monitoring (PDM) data to verify the financial volume of the provided voucher assistance. If required, use the PDM findings to adjust the data on the financial value of the provided assistance.
3) The indicator’s value equals to the financial value (in British pounds) of those vouchers that were provided to the project beneficiaries and which the beneficiaries used. It should include the value of the provided and redeemed vouchers only, and not include any staff, logistics or other costs.
