Review on DFID’s approach to Delivering Impact

Agulhas supported ICAI in drafting a review on DFID’s approach to delivering meaningful and sustainable impact across its portfolio. Strengthening results management has been a key priority for DFID in recent years. DFID has worked to ensure that value for money and accountability are built into its business processes and to demonstrating its results to parliament and the public: this has become known as the results agenda. Some of the conclusions of the review are that the results agenda has helped DFID to bring greater discipline in the measurement of results, however it has also had the effect of focusing the attention to quantity of results over quality.
