The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) has developed an updated Organizational Capacity Assessment Tool (OCAT) to allow organisations to assess their capacity to deliver and/or scale-up CTP effectively.

The Organizational Capacity Assessment Tool (OCAT) comprises a User Guide, Tool Worksheets for use in scoring and graphing results respectively, and a Recommendations Matrix. Assessment is done in six categories of organizational capacity, each with a series of criteria. Discussion and scoring on each of the criteria allows the organization to determine gaps and make recommendations for building the required capacity.

The OCAT is intended as a self-assessment tool for organizations to identify gaps and required capacity building for CTP, and to measure progress against initial or target benchmarks.
