Benefit delivery mechanism
Badan Urusan Logistik (BULOG, State Logistics Board) transports rice from storage warehouses to distribution points and regional governments make the transfers from the distribution point to each target household. These transfers are made mostly by local work teams consisting of village officials or the heads of neighbourhood subdivisions, RTs (groups of neighbourhood households), RWs (groups of RTs), and hamlets. Work teams advise households to collect the rice at the local distribution centre using loudspeakers and word of mouth Starting in 2018, the aim is to transfer the subsidy using the KKS card where families can buy goods from certain e-warungs and gradually transition 15.6 million Rastra household beneficiaries to BPNT (cash-less food assistance to 10 million housholds) and Bansos Rastra (rice assistance, 5.6 million households). BPNT provides rice and other staple foods, while Bansos Rastra will provide rice
