For work in the host country, consider suppliers that can be paid directly from New York, as opposed to paying them from in-country cash. While international programs may need to rely on cash to pay suppliers for goods and services, in some cases, it may be possible to arrange for direct payment to a supplier. Direct payments from New York not only allow for better control but also reduce the need for cash in-country. This reduces the need and added risk of transporting cash.
These payments must be reviewed against applicable law. Where permitted, payment is often done via wire transfer.
