SAP program needs validation

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) cited the importance of validation process in the implementation of the emergency cash subsidy under the Social Amelioration Program (SAP).

In a statement, the DSWD said validation is performed to check the eligibility of the beneficiaries and to see if there were duplication in the provision of the aid from the department and other state agencies that are required to implement separate assistance under SAP.

DSWD said it is aware of the needs of low-income Filipino families whose members still cannot work due to the community quarantine and that its goal is to immediately deliver the second tranche of SAP.

DSWD, however, said it is necessary to complete the validation process before the release of the second tranche of the assistance.

DSWD appealed to local government units (LGUs) to expedite the encoding and transmittal of their complete liquidation reports to its field offices (FOs).

The validation and evaluation process will only be conducted by DSWD FOs once the data of each LGU has been submitted in full, as validation is conducted in the city/municipality, provincial and regional levels.

After this, DSWD central office will conduct a deduplication process in which the names of the beneficiaries and their family members will be name-matched with the lists of the Social Security System, Department of Labor and Employment, Department of Agriculture, and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board.

The names of 'left-outs' or waitlisted or those qualified but were not included in the first tranche of the assistance will also be cross-matched with the lists of the said agencies.

The encoded list of beneficiaries from LGUs has to be completed before the deduplication process can be carried out, so delay in the submission of the list and other documentary requirements has an implication in the release of the second tranche of SAP.

LGUs are reminded to expedite the completion of the first tranche distribution of SAP and to immediately submit their reports and other documentary requirements to DSWD.

As of May 29, some 490 LGUs have submitted their encoded SAC forms.
