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.

The Programme Investment Committee (PIC) of the Financial Sector Deepening Trust (Kenya), (the Trust) wishes to appoint a service provider to act as trustee for the Financial Sector Deepening Trust (Kenya) for a five year period commencing 1 January 2017. Currently funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the charitable purpose of the trust is to promote pro-poor financial services in Kenya. Trust programmes include work on long term policy and research; regulation; financial industry infrastructure; and innovation.

The Trustee is fully accountable under the Kenyan Trustee Act (Cap 167) for the discharge of the charitable trust. The powers and responsibilities of the Trustee are set out in the Trust Deed, the PIC constitution and the Trust Policies and Procedures. Although the Trustee is fully responsible for the strategic direction, financial management and fiduciary oversight, and operations of the Trust, it is mandated to seek technical guidance through a ‘no objection’ of the PIC comprising donor and independent members, and to implement the programme using the services of technical and financial managers. As a result the role of the trustees is primarily one of oversight, ensuring that the systems and processes necessary to ensure programmatic, operational and financial integrity are followed. The Trustee will appoint two of its employees to act as the registered trustees of the Trust; and will be expected to maintain good donor relationships.

FSD Africa (‘FSDA’) is inviting Expressions of Interest from consulting or advisory firms to manage an FSDA-funded challenge fund (‘Challenge Fund’) that will attract competitive proposals from financial service providers (FSPs) in sub-Saharan Africa (‘SSA’) aimed at increasing access to financial services on the African continent (the ‘Services’).

The Challenge Fund will provide FSPs with resources to allow them to carry out a diagnostic of their core capabilities and capacity building needs; and develop quality change management proposals to implement value creation strategies at the finance frontier for FSDA's further consideration and possible funding.

Proposals for funding will be from FSPs themselves but working in collaboration with named consultants or advisory firms which will carry out the diagnostic work. Thus, while FSPs will be the grantees of awards made under the Challenge Fund, consultants and advisory firms will benefit from this funding to a major extent.

The most compelling proposals would qualify for FSDA support for technical assistance and grant funding that would support the FSPs towards building capacity and managing the change process as they implement their financial inclusion strategies.

If successful in the shortlisting process, your firm will be invited to put forward a full proposal for the management of the challenge fund.
