Financial Value of Provided Cash Assistance
INDICATOR PHRASING: total financial value (in GBP) of the provided cash assistance
What is its purpose?
The indicator measures the total financial value (in British pounds) of the cash 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 cash 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 provided cash assistance. This can include, for example, distribution lists (for payments in cash), bank statements (for bank transfers), relevant project reports, etc.
2) Use available post-distribution monitoring (PDM) data to verify the amount of provided cash 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 the cash assistance that was actually provided to the project beneficiaries. It should include the value of the provided cash payments only, and not include any staff, logistics or other costs.
