The GoK has sought World Bank assistance for rural electrification in theproposed Kenya Electricity Modernization Project (KEMP). The KEMP intends to include an Off-grid Electrification Component.

In this regard, the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum is thus seeking to procurea short term consultancy,to recommend business model(s) for private sector engagement in renewable energy hybrid mini-grids inKenya; for the recommended business model(s), develop the regulatory framework, technical standards and financial compensationmechanism; and recommend a bidding and award strategy for competitively granting projects to the private sector, including bidevaluation criteria.

Support for design of payment solution for social protection in Kenya

Financial Sector Deepening Trust (Kenya) | Published January 25, 2017  -  Deadline February 3, 2017

Kenya has a long history of investing in social protection and has engrained commitment to ensure access to affordable healthcare, social security, and social assistance for her citizens within the Constitution of Kenya (2010). In the recent past, the Government of Kenya (GoK) established the National Safety Net Programme (NSNP), by creating a framework around which the four main cash transfer programmes can increasingly be coordinated and harmonized. The four cash transfer programmes include: Cash Transfer for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (CT-OVC); Older Persons Cash Transfer (OPCT); Persons with Severe Disability Cash Transfer (PWSD-CT) and the Hunger Safety Net Programme (HSNP).

One of the critical components in realizing the objectives of the NSNP, is to implement an efficient payment delivery mechanism and robust information systems that ensures; payments are delivered in a timely, convenient and secure way to the beneficiaries, and that programme managers can monitor progress of payments. Concerted efforts have been made by Government to deliver these payments using digital means, leveraging on the capacity of regulated Payment Service Providers (PSPs) and appropriate regulatory framework for electronic payments.

FSD has since 2013 provided technical assistance to the NSNP in the form of a payment specialist to support the team in payment related functions following its experience as the payment service manager for HSNP. Two major achievements of this engagement have been the shift from manual payments to electronic and the adoption of two factor authentication for the three programmes under NSNP. In 2015, FSD facilitated a payment workshop that brought together stakeholders implementing Government social payments to share current developments and initiatives in payment solutions in the country. Among the key recommendations from the workshop were;

— Delivery of funds through full bank accounts as opposed to the current limited purpose pre-paid cards;

— Adoption of a payment model that increasingly supports beneficiary choice of PSP where possible;

— Consolidation of payments and payment management for efficiency, economies of scale and financial inclusion through training, savings culture and enabling access to financial services.

In September 2016, the MEAL&SP through the PS (Principal Secretary requested for FSD's support to create an efficient and effective system for the transfer of social protection payments. In a letter to the PS dated 29.9.2016, FSD confirmed its support to the Ministry in 2 key areas;

1. Design and implementation of a payments architecture that meets the above objective;

2. Examine the existing management information system and identify critical design specifications that will support the envisioned payment architecture.

As part of the work under support for design of HSNP III, some work had already begun in identifying potential approaches to rationalising the payment system architecture for social protection. There are other parallel developments within the payments landscape that will foster integration and increase efficiency of all payments across Kenya. FSD has been involved in these developments and is therefore well placed to deliver on this mandate.

Graduation pilot: impact research support.

Financial Sector Deepening Trust (Kenya) | Published October 3, 2015  -  Deadline October 16, 2015

Financial Sector Deepening (FSD) Kenya has begun to support implementation of a graduation project in Marsabit County, Northern Kenya. The project's objective is to test market development approaches to building resilience of very poor households. Designed as an action research project, it will adapt delivery of the 5 key components of the BRAC graduation model which are designed to enable participants to engage in productive income generating activities (IGAs) as a means to resilience. The 5 elements include: a) Social integration and motivation through a process of coaching and mentoring; b) A consumption stipend to provide participants with a basic income platform from which to build; c) Savings to create a cushion to bridge variations in cash flow and protection against risks; d) Technical skills training related to the new income generating activity; and e) Productive asset transfer. Recognising the importance of health to programme outcomes, sometimes training is provided on primary healthcare and a linkage made to providers. There is already proven impact that the BRAC graduation package has positive impacts on livelihood even after end of project. However, the model is costly and this challenges its scalability. This project aims to reduce the long-run average cost for delivering the graduation package by exploiting the inherent adaptability of the model to a market-based solution. In this endeavour, it will leverage 2 initiatives that FSD is currently involved in i.e. the Hunger Safety Net programme (HSNP) in which FSD acts as a payment services manager supporting the development of private sector driven solutions to providing large scale payments, and FSD's supported savings groups project which is being implemented by CARE Kenya, for the second and third elements of the model. The project will use the savings groups (with a mixed membership of both HSNP and non-HSNP beneficiaries) as an entry point for delivery of most of the training, mentoring and coaching interventions. Theoretically, it is anticipated that the levels of support to the households will vary and consequently the impact. A key intervention in this graduation approach is access to a productive asset which the target households are expected to use in undertaking an income generating activity to support their transition to resilience. Only the HSNP beneficiaries participating in this project will be facilitated to acquire productive assets. FSD recognises the need to design and conduct credible research to rigorously measure the impact of deploying the graduation pilot interventions on both the direct project beneficiaries and the community as a whole. In addition, the impact research would need to be cognisant of the envisaged role of each of the 5 interventions and build these into the assessment tools and the monitoring process. From the onset, baseline data will be useful in supporting the identification and prioritisation of viable IGAs for the participants to determine the level of income that a particular IGA would need to generate to be termed viable. FSD is looking for a consultancy firm or team of consultants to provide technical support in carrying out the impact research of this project.
