star this property answer text <p>The passage of the CDC Bill earlier this year enabled significant, and welcome, parliamentary scrutiny of CDC as an institution, and of the case for recapitalisation of it. Issues raised by Parliamentarians from all sides of the House fed into CDC 2017-21 Strategic Framework, launched earlier this year. As is normal practice, the CDC recapitalisation business case will be subject to government review and quality assurance processes, and will be published once approved by Ministers. My Department will continue to engage closely with Parliamentarians on all aspects of CDC’s work, and we welcome constructive input from all sources.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for International Development (DFID) has a robust process in place for reporting and managing all whistleblowing concerns. This process was recently refreshed to ensure it remains in line with Cabinet Office standards and recommended best practice. The process is managed independently by DFID’s internal audit department and has been designed to give confidence to all stakeholders to raise concerns, in line with the open and transparent culture that DFID has sought to create.</p><p>The whistleblowing reporting process is set out clearly on DFID’s external website (<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/department-for-international-development/about#reporting-fraud" target="_blank">Reporting Fraud</a>) and in more detail within the department’s internal intranet, accessible by all staff. DFID has made civil service e-learning on fraud modules mandatory for all staff and has embedded fraud awareness components across many of its core training interventions. DFID has appointed a dedicated fraud resource across the department’s country office network to support staff on an on-going basis and keep the profile of whistleblowing high.</p><p>In additional to the regular awareness raising activities undertaken, DFID played an active role in publicising the cross civil service whistleblowing awareness week in 2016 and will do so again during September 2017.</p>
