star this property answer text <p>In line with the UK Government commitments to increase transparency, DFID publishes details of types of contract award and spend transactions over £500 on a monthly basis. This includes expenditure at supplier level and the amount for project and Consultancy services. This information can be accessed for spend on the .Gov portal and for contracts on the Contracts finder website.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>British taxpayers expect all ODA to be high quality and well-targeted, and since 2010, value for money and transparency of UK official development assistance (ODA) has been a top priority for DFID. In the last 5 years, DFID has worked hard to make its systems and processes more rigorous to make sure that aid projects reach intended beneficiaries and deliver results, including introducing greater ministerial oversight and new spending controls. Business cases and delivery plans are used for all DFID projects setting out the rationale for the projects and how they will be implemented. Formal project reviews are required annually and at completion against a performance monitoring framework. These reviews assess and record that funds have been used for their intended purposes and what results have been delivered. DFID has also reduced the number of bilateral country programmes since 2010. Finally, DFID has introduced greater transparency and scrutiny of DFID’s work through setting up the aid watchdog, the Independent Commission for Aid Impact, which scrutinises everything DFID does, alongside the work of the International Development Select Committee.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The National Audit Office, the principal state audit body in the United Kingdom, provides independent external audit of DFID’s spending, including carrying out value for money and other effectiveness reviews. DFID’s Annual Report and Accounts are also subject to audit by the National Audit Office. The Comptroller and Auditor General signed DFID’s 2014–15 Annual Report and Accounts on 9 July 2015 and issued an unqualified audit opinion. Rigorous independent scrutiny of the effectiveness of DFID’s work is also provided by the Independent Commission on Aid Impact which reports to the International Development Select Committee in Parliament.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>DFID’s internal audit department provides assurance over governance, risk management and control systems through a programme of audits which cover DFID processes, departments and projects. In 2014-15 the Secretary of State significantly scaled up internal audit and counter fraud resources to strengthen internal capacity and skills, increase the depth and breadth of assurance coverage, and ensure that all DFID country offices are audited at least every other year. At a programme level, all organisations which receive funding from DFID are required to provide evidence about the use of funds, including providing independently audited financial statements to our programme managers.</p>
