A. Main Risks of Diversion

The main risks of diversion at the distribution site other than registration abuses described above include:

· Distributors purposely giving less than a prescribed ration to a beneficiary

· Collusion involving site level staff and falsifying distribution records

· Lack of crowd control at the site level

· Favoritism by the distributor. Some distributors give better quality sections of fish or meat to family members and acquaintances.

· Receipt of underweight bags from either the main warehouse or the transporter which do not show up as underweight until the time of distribution. The result of this can be reduced ration sizes to beneficiaries.
