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.

This report was prepared by ICAI with the assistance of KPMG LLP and Agulhas Applied Knowledge.
