2019 Report of the Verification Scheme Review

KPMG was retained by the CHS Alliance to conduct a review of the existing Verification Scheme and make recommendations for the way ahead. The review comprises an assessment of the current Verification Scheme, and a desk study of verification schemes used by comparable organisations. The views and opinions expressed in the reports are the sole responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent those of the CHS Alliance.

Overall, the report finds there is a consensus that verification improves the quality of services delivered by CHSA members. However, the Verification Scheme needs further development. Based on review findings, KPMG developed options and recommendations for further development of the CHSA Verification Scheme.
