Typical CRI/NFI distribution cycle procedure and processes at the three UNHCR warehouses and 12 distribution storage points in Uganda operation comprises of the following:
CATEGORY 1: One-Off New Arrival Household NFI Kits to non-biometrically registered refugees (and asylum seekers) at collection points, transit or reception centres.
CATEGORY 2: One-Off New Arrival Household Emergency Shelter Kits and Household NFI Kits to biometrically registered refugees at drop-off points within settlements.
CATEGORY 3: Repeat Consumable replenishment NFI distributions (soap, hygiene kits) to biometrically registered refugees.
CATEGORY 4: Special circumstance cases (victims of arson cases, medical cases, EVI) – NFI kits distributed based on assessments made.
The operation has established a harmonized and systematic approach towards an effective control over NFI management, covering all steps from the release of the items from the UNHCR MSRP warehouse, to distribution to refugees, to accounting for distributions and reconciling stocks, in compliance with UNHCR programme, supply, and financial procedures. For accountability, this will result in a monthly reconciliation record of NFIs released from UNHCR MSRP warehouses and NFIs received by refugees.
