NRD Companies have completed the development of the Unified Registry of Beneficiaries System for Tanzania Social Action Fund (TASAF).
The project included development of potential beneficiaries’ database that is ready to be integrated with TASAF III PSSN Management Information System (MIS) and other key stakeholders’ MIS, development of mobile application, which supports data collection using mobile device, and development of an open API, which enables interfacing with stakeholders systems.
All targeting information is migrated from the current CB-CCT MIS to URB. The URB is also linked with National Identification Authority (NIDA) for cross-checking the identity.
Users from different organizations are now able to interact with the Unified Registry of Beneficiaries and extract the list of beneficiaries according to their needed criteria. It is expected that the URB will function as a baseline for current and future social protection programs.
The contract was financed by the International Development Association credit. The Government of the United Republic of Tanzania has been implementing the Tanzania Social Action Fund (TASAF) since 2000.
The project resulted in:
- Internet based application (Oracle/PHP) and mobile data collection application (Android/SQLite);
- Register integration with NIDA system;
- Integration mechanism for data transfer to PSSN MIS;
- Data migration;
- Training of trainers and programmers.
