Review of the Quality of DFID Performance Management Systems

The assignment was commissioned to answer whether the quality of DFID project documentation (particularly reviews) is changing over time, and whether scoring of reviews was consistent across the portfolio.

Agulhas assessed 194 projects across the DFID portfolio.  The sample included only activities with a total commitment value of £5 million, or over.

We provided detailed analysis and recommendations, many of which have since been implemented by DFID.
