Evidencing the Value for Money of the CCI’s Cash and Legal Programmes
Value for Money (VfM) considerations are an increasingly common requisite in humanitarian programmes.
The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) supports the adoption and scale-up of cash programming in humanitarian settings where appropriate, as both a more effective means for people to meet their basic needs in crisis, and a more cost-efficient modality than traditional forms of in-kind assistance. As part of its own VfM agenda, DFID would like to see whether INGOs, working through a consortium model, can scale to deliver cash assistance while demonstrating VfM. DFID have funded the Cash Consortium for Iraq (CCI) to respond in Iraq with MPCA, and to demonstrate VfM in their response.
