National Audit Office: Good Governance Review on DFID’s Monitoring and Evaluation Arrangements

The following information has been sent out by email

—————————-

“The role and remit of the NAO

The NAO is tasked with examining the economy, effectiveness and efficiency
with which government departments have used public money. Our review will
examine DFID’s monitoring and evaluation framework and whether it
influences decision making and operational activities. In this instance,
our work will take the form of a management report to DFID, which will be
publicly available but not aimed at Parliament or the media.

Stakeholder Survey

As part of the fieldwork for the review we are conducting an e-survey of
key stakeholders. It is designed to get your views on DFID evaluations and
to what extent they affect your work. For these purposes, we define
evaluation to include the studies undertaken or commissioned by DFID’s
Evaluation Department (EvD), and also major programme or policy reviews
commissioned by DFID line staff, or jointly with other donors, that
clearly evaluate past performance.”

Elsewhere it is said:

It [the review] will follow-up our 2002 report “Performance Management – Helping to Reduce World Poverty” and the results of the survey will be made available to the Independent Advisory Committee on Development Impact (IACDI) to inform the work plan of the committee in its task of assuring the independence and quality of DFID evaluations.
