Results-Based Financing (RBF) for Enhancing Book Distribution in Cambodia : Descriptive Note (English)

Ensuring that educational materials are delivered in the correct quantities to the schools they are intended for, and in a timely fashion, is a challenge in many countries. In Cambodia, research conducted by World Education (WEI) and John Snow, Inc. (JSI) highlighted a well-known picture of a textbook supply chain that is characterized by delay, inefficiency and inaccuracy at every stage. The result is that new textbooks do not arrive in time for the new school year, with up to three other deliveries arriving considerably later, and deliveries rarely match requirements. In addition to impacting the quality of education, the loss of inventory and mismanagement of resources results in waste and inefficient spending. Materials can go astray at any stage in the delivery process, but without the availability of tracking information, officials do not know where the issues arise. To address this challenge, WEI and JSI designed Track and Trace (TnT), a technology solution that is designed to increase the visibility and efficiency of the textbook supply chain.
