DFID supports evaluation of project proposals through representation on formal cross-government or sectoral governance mechanisms, and through collaboration and close working of officials. DFID makes available its independent evaluation and quality assurance service and contributes to production of cross-government guidance. The Aid Strategy is clear that individual departments are ultimately responsible for the final design and evaluation of their projects.</p><p> </p> more like this
