The Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) is the independent body responsible for scrutiny of UK aid. ICAI focuses on maximising the impact and effectiveness of the UK aid budget for intended beneficiaries and the delivery of value for money for the UK taxpayer. ICAI reports to Parliament through the House of Commons International Development Committee.
A full list of ICAI reports is available here.

“DFID needs to increase the opportunities to learn continuously from how aid is implemented. It is not yet demonstrating sufficiently that it consistently learns from all stages of the delivery chain. In particular, it should deliberately and continuously listen to and use the knowledge and know-how of its partners and contractors; and that of the intended beneficiaries themselves. By identifying what works best, DFID can improve the impact and value for money of UK aid.”
