The Department for International Development (DFID) channelled £140 million in electoral assistance through United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) managed projects between 2001 and 2011 (71% of DFID’s total support for electoral assistance of £197 million).
This review on DFID’s electoral support through UNDP assesses whether DFID funding for electoral support through the UNDP is being managed effectively and delivering value for money. It is a review of DFID’s management and oversight, not of UNDP itself.
The review was published in April 2012 and we awarded a green-amber score. Five recommendations were made to government, and the follow-up to this review was published in July 2013.
