Integrated Beneficiary Registry and SP-MIS

Integrated beneficiary registries (IBR) consolidate data on the benefits received by programme beneficiaries across several programmes. The goal of an IBR is to provide a comprehensive picture of who is receiving which benefit from which programme. IBR are distinct from social registries. While a social registry will hold a list of all people and/or households registered (and hence potentially eligible to receive benefits) an IBR will only hold data on people and/or households that have received a benefit from at least one programme. This online tool is a set of Integrated Beneficiary Registry and SP-MIS Standards created by the Digital Convergence Initiative (DCI).
