This facilitated citizen's access to federal government distribution of benefit payments and the number of individual's claiming benefit payments fell, as many fraudulent claims were shut down.
Growth Enhancement Scheme: Touch and Pay (GES -TAP) : The team assisted in delivering a service that was used to register and distribute e-vouchers to more than 500,000 subsistence farmers over a 3-month period. The e-vouchers provided the farmers with subsidies in excess of $19,000,000 USD for fertilizer, seeds and other agricultural inputs. The Figure (1) displays the process used from registration to transaction.

The service collects information about farmers and their merchants in areas with unreliable or no communication or electricity networks; issues them a transactional identity card; uploads the information to a cloud-based database; assigns and distributes e-vouchers to the farmers; manages their redemption in registered merchants by the farmers in exchange for subsidized goods or services; transmits information about the e-vouchers redeemed to the cloud-based database; and periodically delivers transaction reports detailing the funds to be repaid to the merchant.
