Financial Value of Provided In-Kind Assistance
INDICATOR PHRASING: total financial value (in GBP) of the provided in-kind assistance
What is its purpose?
The indicator measures the total financial value (in British pounds) of the in-kind 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 in-kind 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 1) the amount of in-kind assistance provided to each beneficiary as a part of the project and 2) the total financial value of the provided in-kind assistance. This can include, for example:
- project reports
- distribution lists
- financial documents (receipts, invoices, overviews of budget spending, etc.)
2) Use available post-distribution monitoring (PDM) data to verify the amount of provided assistance (not purchased assistance – it must be data on what was actually given to the project beneficiaries). If required, use the PDM findings to adjust the data on the amount of provided assistance and its financial value.
3) The indicator’s value equals to the financial value (in British pounds) of the assistance that was actually provided to the project beneficiaries. It should include the value of the provided in-kind support only, and not include any staff, logistics or other costs.
