* Registry for government social welfare programs set up for efficient management
Mon, Apr 23, 2018, 07:39 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 23, Colombo: According to an initiative taken by the Ministry of National Policies and Economic Affairs in 2015, the Department of Project management & Monitoring (DPMM) has taken steps to develop a Management Information System (MIS) on social welfare programs implemented under the Government of Sri Lanka.

This MIS has been developed by Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) with the coordination and support from DPMM and Policy Development Office of the Prime Minister's Office. Currently the system contains information related to beneficiaries of 24 welfare programs under 12 state institutions funded by the Government.

All the District level demographic information of the beneficiaries are available for access by the public on http://socialregistry.gov.lk/. Currently steps are being taken to eliminate the duplicated data entered in the system.

The system will be beneficial to the policy makers in developing evidence-based policies for social empowerment and also in designing better welfare programs for the vulnerable groups in the society. Further it is expected that this system will reduce the welfare cost of the Government by eliminating the duplication of beneficiaries. Also, it is expected to utilize the information collected under the social registry to further develop the Sri Lanka's social protection program under the Social Safety Nets Project (SSNP) funded by the World Bank under the Ministry of Finance.
