This component supports project management, coordination and capacity building under the Ghana Productive Safety Net Project (GPSNP). It is split into two sub-components, with the Ministry of Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development overseeing the finance of project management, coordination, and capacity building and other project-related operating costs for the implementation of components 1 and 2 of GPSNP. This support includes procurement of service providers to implement operational aspects of the CLASS and LIPW components, including payments and auditing as well as building the capacity of key stakeholders and strengthening the program’s digitized delivery mechanisms and computerized MIS to support program management and delivery.
The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, on the other hand, oversees the finance of project management, coordination and capacity building and other project-related operating costs for the implementation of components 3 and 4 of GPSNP. This support includes the procurement of service providers to implement the operational aspects of the GNHR and LEAP, including data collection, electronic registration, payment, and auditing. This sub component also provides capacity building to key stakeholders at the central and local government levels involved in the implementation of LEAP, GNHR and SWCES.
