Rapid Review of DFIDs Smart Rules

DFID recently reformed its procedures for programme management. It has called these new procedures ‘Smart Rules: Better Programme Delivery’. This work undertakes a rapid review of the Smart Rules, to see how they respond to the issues that have been raised in ICAI’s 38 reports to date. Aim of this review was to help DFID to refine and enhance the impact of the Smart Rules.

The review was prepared by KPMG LLP and Agulhas for ICAI.
