star this property answer text <p>Effective use of the UK Aid budget is central to the Department for International Development’s work. All funding is subject to rigorous due diligence checks and we have strict auditing and monitoring controls in place to ensure all funding is used as it should be. Every project is subject to an annual performance review and a project completion review to ensure that the objectives have been achieved and aid has been delivered to the intended beneficiaries. The Department uses multiple sources of information, including its partnerships with Civil Society, to be confident UK Aid reaches those intended.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Development Assistance Committee (OECD-DAC) determines what may be counted as Official Development Assistance. As it operates by consensus, we are working with our DAC partners and other stakeholders to achieve this.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for International Development has robust measures in place to protect, prevent, and detect the diversion of aid. We have controls embedded through-out the programme cycle, from design through mobilisation, delivery and closure; this includes a rigorous due diligence process and a comprehensive risk management framework which requires risks to be identified prior to any disbursement of aid.</p><p>All organisations that receive funding from DFID are required to provide evidence about the use of funds, including audited financial statements which are examined as we monitor programme performance and delivery. All of our funding mechanisms allow DFID to terminate funding projects early if suppliers do not fulfil their obligations. DFID uses the UK Partnership Principles which are a set of 4 principles to assess partner governments. These include a commitment to respect human rights, and in particular the civil, social and cultural rights of poor or marginalised people.</p><p>We have a zero tolerance approach to aid diversion and this applies to all those within the delivery chain who are entrusted with UK aid. When aid diversion is identified DFID will always work to recover UK taxpayers’ money.</p>
