Organizational Cash Readiness Tool (OCRT): Process guide
CALP Network developed the Organizational Cash Readiness Tool (OCRT) to assist organizations in developing readiness and capacity for delivering cash and voucher assistance (CVA). An organization can use the OCRT to take a snapshot of its current CVA readiness, and then use that assessment to develop plans to address shortcomings. This typically means going through a facilitated three-to-six-month process of getting familiar with the tool, gathering evidence for scoring each indicator, deciding on the final scores, forming recommendations, and developing action plans to increase organizational readiness for CVA.
In addition to the OCRT, CALP developed the ORCT Instructions and this Organizational Cash Readiness (OCR) Process Guide. The OCRT Instructions give detailed guidance on the use of the tool. All participants in an OCR process should consult the OCRT Instructions. This guide may also be of interest to participants, but is specifically designed to assist facilitators of the OCR process.
