*Publication dates subject to change; ICAI’s work plan remains under review during the Covid-19 pandemic

This is a provisional work plan which is subject to change. Additional reviews will be added after they have been confirmed. Alongside this work plan, we will retain some capacity to undertake ad hoc reports on specific issues of interest or concern.

Selection criteria

We use four selection criteria when planning our work plan:

  • Relevance – the relevance of the topic to new and emerging challenges for the aid programme and its level of interest to stakeholders and the public.
  • Materiality – the importance of the topic in terms of scale of expenditure.
  • Risk – the level of risk involved to achieve the objectives of UK aid or to the appropriate use of UK funds.
  • Value-added – appropriate coverage of the UK aid programme, across sectors, issues, types of programme and spending department, taking into account reviews done by others.

The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, which aim to make the world a fairer, healthier, safer and more prosperous place for all by 2030, provide us with a framework for selecting our work:
