BISP to redesign payment mechanism; will strengthen the BISP: Dr Sania Nishter

BISP to redesign payment mechanism; will strengthen the BISP: Dr Sania Nishter

ISLAMABAD   -  BISP Chairperson Dr Sania Nishter has said that several reforms in the Benazir Income Support Programme including redesigning the payment mechanism are underway.

“I plan to move ahead on two fronts quickly before 2018 ends. First, putting organisational governance in order by making sure the new board is effectively and meaningfully engaged; and secondly, initiating processes to plug critical systems gaps”, said Dr Sania in a statement issued here on Sunday.

“It has been over a month since I accepted government’s invitation to chair the BISP, Pakistan’s largest safety net institution, which currently runs a Rs125 billion income-support programme for 5.7 million poor women with an envisaged impact for over 37 million individuals, nationally” , she said.

Inviting an apolitical person to lead the organisation is evidence of the government’s intentions to depoliticise this institution. It is deeply humbling to have responsibility for accruing benefits to millions at the lowest rung of poverty, Dr Sania Nishter added.

While I believe in the importance of the institution and appreciate the contributions of the management and many stakeholders, I am also conscious of the imperative of reform and have, therefore, taken careful stock of the situation, she said.

She said, “My immediate priority is to strengthen the BISP as a safety net”.

BISP has many legacy issues, which successive managements have strived to address. Several gaps have been plugged, but many critical gaps remain to be closed. BISP’s payment mechanism needs a redesign. There is need to strengthen fiduciary systems, financial management and procurement systems, internal controls, and capacity and systems for planning. My priority is to institutionalise risk management and assurance, transparency, and a culture of evidence-based decision-making. I am deeply conscious that those that benefit from the programme are voiceless, which is why beneficiary empowerment and respect is also high on the list of priorities. In this regard, I will work with the board and management to reform BISP’s systems pillars, Dr Sania added.

Once critical gaps are plugged, the existing safety net system can be expanded, and the adequacy of the benefits can be increased as per government’s policy, especially with regard to complementary investments for human capital development (conditional cash transfers for nutrition, health, and education) and graduation programmes. In addition, demand-side safety net instruments can be introduced for protection against crises and catastrophic shocks — a salient safety net feature, she said.

Going forward, I envision BISP as a dynamic digital social protection ecosystem for the future. In such an ecosystem, it will be possible to develop targeted policy interventions, and deliver precise means tested benefits to the poor and vulnerable by employing big data analytics and by tracking real-time information about the evolution of the beneficiary status, to make social protection adaptive. This will enable time-bound support for income stabilization and protection against catastrophic shocks on the one hand, and the creation of economic opportunities to decrease welfare-dependency, through relevant partnerships, on the other. In addition, this will also move Pakistan closer to delivering on its global commitment to Sustainable Development Goal, which entails developing nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all. A strategic planning process will commence at the forthcoming board meeting on December 24, with a view to commencing action in these areas, she said.

“I look forward to working with all stakeholders to ensure that we deliver on our promise of lifting millions of women and their families out of poverty” the chairperson BISP said.
