Restructuring Paper on a Proposed Project Restructuring of Social Assistance System Strenghtening Project to Socialist Republic of Vietnam

The development objective of Social Assistance System Strengthening Project is to support the government of Vietnam in strengthening the social assistance system by developing innovations in management and service delivery nationwide, and by piloting these innovations in the four project provinces. This restructuring requires the Results Framework to be revised to provide more accurate intermediate indicators under Component 2. The original indicators were designed to capture payment frequency for the integrated household package under the Opportunity Program. However, this policy consolidation has not progressed entirely as planned and it was agreed with Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) to revise the results framework. The precise indicators and their current and target values were agreed with MOLISA during an implementation support mission in June 2017.
