What is SCOPE?

Since February 2015, WFP Somalia has been using SCOPE, a digital beneficiary and transfer management platform that supports programme intervention cycles from beginning to end. It is a cloud-based solution used for biometric registration of beneficiaries, intervention setup, distribution planning, entitlement transfers and distribution reporting.

SCOPE has been designed to support all transfer modalities, such as e-vouchers, in-kind food and cash. Use of biometric signatures to redeem entitlements provide beneficiaries, donors and Government partners with the assurance that WFP assistance reaches the people it is intended for. SCOPE also offers the possibility of multiple interventions through its multi-wallet feature, enabling partner agencies to share the platform and beneficiary data.
