This term of reference document defines the plan and deliverables for the Police Department, Vanuatu to assess the Police Clearances process with a view to establish opportunities for digitization of the related payments process including mapping the existing payment flows (Person to Government or P2G). The objective is to scope out the feasibility of setting up (i) a digital process for processing and issuing police clearance certificates and (ii) introducing digital payment options to reduce client costs and improve efficiency of operations.
Digitizing payments and promoting electronic payments in government channels is a key focus area within the Vanuatu National Financial Inclusion Strategy (2018-2023). The Reserve Bank of Vanuatu is the lead institution responsible for implementing the NFIS and along with support from UNCDF’s Pacific Financial Inclusion Programme, Ministry of Finance and Economic Management and Vanuatu Police Force, coordinates the P2G Police Clearance Project in Vanuatu.
The Vanuatu Police Force has the vision of a modern and professional police force united in delivering policing service, in partnership with our communities for a safe and secure Vanuatu. The Force administers the Police clearances payments process for all Police clearances for Vanuatu residents. Payment flows (P2G) for Police clearance activities are predominantly via cash. The Force has other payment flows as part of its normal business operations. It is understood that these payment forms use cash, cheque, voucher and direct debit transfers.
