Annual report and follow-up
ICAI has published its annual report for 2015-16 and a follow-up assessment of ICAI reviews published in 2014-15.
As part of this year’s report ICAI has examined changes underway in the share of Official Development Assistance (ODA) spent by departments other than DFID. ODA spending by departments other than DFID is expected to increase from around £1.7 billion in 2015 to a projected £4 billion by 2020.
ICAI’s analysis concludes that the increased complexity of the aid landscape poses some risks for the effectiveness and value for money of UK aid, and for maintaining a focus on helping those most in need.
The report also contains a follow-up assessment of ICAI reviews published in 2014-15. This process is an important link in the chain of accountability, providing the International Development Committee and other stakeholders with an account of whether DFID, or other responsible departments, have taken action in response to ICAI concerns.
