4.7 Cash facilitation
In locations where CARE, for any reason, is not authorised to open a bank account or where authorised banking institutions do not exist, cash facilitation is an alternative method to hand-carrying cash and keeping large amounts of cash at the office. The detailed steps for selecting a cash facilitator are explained in Annex 17.6 Cash Facilitator Selection. It is recommended that the rationale for selecting a particular cash facilitator also should be documented in Annex 17.5 Cash Facilitation Procedure, as it will be useful during auditing. In addition, a sample Annex 17.4 Cash Facilitation Agreement is also attached.
