COLLABORATION TOOLKIT: STARTUP NETWORK
B_1 INTRODUCTION TO CCD
Have organisations in your country decided that your country's cash community would benefit from a formal CCD network? Once an anchor (a national office of a global CCD member organisation) volunteers to serve as a convener of other global CCD members operating in country to gauge interest level and identify priority issues, the country moves to CCD’s “startup” stage. The objective of this stage is to form a core group of NGOs and agencies who are interested in setting up a national network to work collaboratively and then work, either consecutively
or simultaneously, to analyse the context, understand their agencies’ cash capacities and gaps in expertise, define common interests and needs, develop good relations between the members, and outline a solid action plan.
Here are some tools to help get you started with the startup process. Contact us with any questions.

B_4_3 RESPONSE BUILDER
In partnership with Pivotal Labs, CCD is exploring how best to support CCD members to design collaborative cash responses. Draft guidance outlining key steps and design decisions for developing and customising a cash collaboration model has been developed and piloted as part of the Response Builder platform.
This guidance was further developed based on best practices along with insights and recommendations from CCD members. It will form the basis for a newly designed digital product that provides CCD members a collaboration sandbox where they can quickly model different collaboration design choices based on guidance and best practices. This product will help CCD members to design, setup, and establish CCD collaborations to respond to crisis as well as run collaborative scenario planning in the preparedness phase.

B_5_4 DATA SHARING TEMPLATE
The template Data Sharing Agreement is intended to promote responsible data practices and sharing between organisations in the nonprofit sector, and, where applicable, their private sector partners. It borrows from corporate best practices and approaches, and is intended as:
a transactional roadmap for responsible data sharing in a given context
an educational tool for organisations to understand obligations in this area
requiring early and deep discussion and due diligence of expectations around approaches, policies and procedures and related roles and responsibilities amongst the parties
a starting point for negotiations of an eventual written agreement between the parties.
Each provision must be carefully considered, and it is not just appropriate but necessary for modifications (both additions and deletions) to be made based on context and the views of the parties. Footnotes should be deleted. Nothing in this template is fixed or predetermined and it is intended only to assist the parties by providing them with a basis for discussion.
This template agreement contemplates considerable ethical, programmatic, and legal responsibilities and should only be utilised in close consultation with appropriate country office management, information technology/digital teams, and local and home office legal counsel at each participating organisation/company. This agreement requires discussion and modification, and application to each specific context and party.
While the parties signing the agreement will generally be sharing personal information that has already been collected, a basic consent form has been provided for organisations who may wish to consider adapting for use when collecting personal information. Like the agreement itself, the form of consent is a mere template that should be carefully reviewed and modified to ensure its suitability for the specific context in which it is being used.
