Tracking Expenditure on Cash Transfer Programming
The need for reliable and comparable data on Cash Transfer Programmes (CTPs), collected systematically and based on standardized markers and definitions, is widely recognised. Improved CTP tracking and reporting is essential for monitoring progress towards the commitments made to strengthen the scale and quality of cash and voucher programming, and requires collective action to achieve it.
The Grand Bargain commits signatories to “employ markers to measure the increase [in CTP]”. This is reflected in the Global Framework for Action1 as Supporting Action 1.2 “Develop and employ common markers and definitions for organisations to track and report CTP”.
