A. Functions and Responsibilities
A beneficiary registration system has six basic functions:
· Determine who is eligible for
· Identify beneficiaries in a
reliable and repeatable way
· Insure that
eligible beneficiaries only receive one ration
· Identify duplicate registrations in an existing
· Provide a method of
planning for anticipated resource requirements
· Provide information for donor reports.
CAREs responsibilities in the registration process vary
depending on agreements with its counterparts and on project objectives. For
example, the counterpart may already provide beneficiary lists and have an
established registration system. In these cases CARE is responsible only for
monitoring and training. In other situations, CARE may be fully responsible for
targeting, registering, distributing, and monitoring end-use activities.
Whether CARE is directly or indirectly involved in the
physical registration of participants, a poorly functioning registration system
can result in large-scale misappropriation of food.
