Follow-Up Year 5
ICAI’s follow-up review looks at how well DFID and other government departments have responded to the recommendations it made in previous reviews.
Each year, ICAI conducts a follow-up review on the government’s response to the recommendations it made in previous reviews. The process is a key link in the accountability chain, providing Parliament and the public with an account of how well DFID and other government departments have responded to ICAI reviews. It also provides feedback to the responsible staff, and serves as a useful learning exercise for ICAI in our quest to achieve greater uptake of our findings and recommendations.
The Year 5 follow-up summarises our findings for the following five reviews:
- Assessing DFID’s results in water, sanitation and hygiene (May 2016)
- DFID’s efforts to eliminate violence against women and girls (May 2016)
- DFID’s approach to managing fiduciary risk in conflict-affected environments (August 2016)
- UK aid’s contribution to tackling tax avoidance and evasion (September 2016)
- How DFID works with multilateral agencies to achieve impact (June 2015)
The review found an encouraging set of responses from DFID in many areas, and saw evidence of ICAI recommendations making a difference through a range of mechanisms.
