6: HACT Assessments

The Harmonized Approach to Cash Transfer (HACT) dictates policies and procedures for capacity assessment, cash transfer modality, audit, assurance and monitoring. The HACT Framework of 2014 provides for a common operational framework for transferring cash to government and non-governmental Implementing Partners (IP). BrainTec Consulting supports UN Organizations (United Nations Development Group Executive Committee agencies such as FAO, UNAIDS, UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, WFP and UNW) and Implementing Partners (Ips) adopt and align to the HACT framework by Providing:

Capacity Assessment:

This involves conducting a review of IPs’ technical, managerial, administrative, and financial capacities. Reassessments are done throughout the life of the project/program on an annual basis. The HACT micro- and macro-assessments form the basis for the selection of the cash transfer modality used for each IP or RP and determine the level of assurance activities needed.

Macro-Assessments:

This is carried out to assess the public financial management (PFM) environment. The HACT Framework extends beyond the financial environment, encompassing elements such as national procurement capacity, exchange rate volatility, and the presence of informal/black markets.

Audits:

The HACT Framework requires at least one scheduled audit during the program cycle or per year, depending on the overall risk rating of the Implementing Partner (IP) or Responsible Party (RP). Audits are conducted to determine whether funds are used for intended purposes and in accordance with the work plan.

Micro-Assessments:

This is carried out to assess the organizational capacity in the areas of finance, procurement, human resources, program/project design, management, and internal controls of potential Implementing Partners/Responsible Parties (IP/RP) involved in the implementation of UN programs. The aim is to determine the overall risk rating and identify assurance activities in line with the HACT framework.

Spot Checks:

Spot checks are performed to assess the accuracy of financial records for cash transfers to IPs, the status of the program, and whether there have been any significant changes to applicable internal controls.

Capacity development:

A critical component of the HACT is Capacity Development, which is key to the Framework’s vision to manage risk. Throughout the program’s cycle, there is a need to ensure that Implementing Partner (IP) or Responsible Party (RP) awareness of the HACT framework is sustained through the development of customized plans and recommendations for capacity development in both the short and long term.
