This Operational Delivery of CTP thematic area is a space for humanitarian practitioners engaged in the operational design and delivery of CTP.  This typically means staff working in finance; logistics; security and ICT, either at field, national or Headquarter level.

To date, guidance around CTP has focused predominantly on the programmatic design and implementation of programmes. However, there is an increasing recognition of the change in skillsets and competences required to deliver cash effectively and securely.

CaLP have therefore collated a set of useful resources and materials designed to provide specific guidance and support to staff involved in the operational design and delivery of CTP.

CaLP’s new Guidance Note for Operational and Support Staff involved in Cash Transfer Programming provides step-by-step guidance to preparing, planning implementing and monitoring a cash programme from the perspective of finance, logistics, security and ICT roles.

This guidance note follows the core steps within the project cycle and offers suggested activities for key support functions in cash transfer programming.

In parallel, CaLP is working with the Fritz institute, to develop standardised inter-agency training materials for Cash operations. These will form part of CaLP’s new standard training offer, and will be developed over the course of 2016. CaLP’s Guidance Note for Operational and Support Staff involved in Cash Transfer Programming will be updated following this process.
