star this property answer text <p>DFID assesses that opportunities for refugees to work in Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya and other refugee camps, can provide considerable benefit for host communities. This includes through increased refugee spending on local goods and services and in some cases, the hiring of host community members to work in refugee owned businesses and homes. The findings of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) study on Kakuma, are consistent with DFID’s recent support to refugees in Kenya, which has helped build the self-reliance of refugees, including through livelihoods opportunities and greater integration with host communities. DFID Kenya has participated in a number of discussions with IFC/UNHCR, the private sector and other development partners on the findings of the study and its implications for donor programming in Kenya.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Supplier Review delivered a number of measures to make it easier for new and smaller businesses to win funding from DFID and ensure fair treatment of sub-contractors. Following consultations with small and medium sized enterprises and NGOs three tiers of reporting requirements for the Supply Partner Code of Conduct have been developed to ensure our processes do not create disproportionate burdens for smaller organisations and NGOs. We are now designing a large new funding framework with dedicated “lots” for smaller suppliers. Furthermore, we continue to hold regional Open for Business events, led by Ministers, across the country to help local businesses understand our processes and encourage them to compete for DFID business. This is all helping DFID to tackle potential barriers and makes it less onerous, costly and time consuming for smaller companies to compete for our contracts.</p> more like this
