The International Development Committee announced today that it is to conduct an inquiry into the Department for International Development’s Annual Report, DFID in 2009-10, and the Department’s Resource Accounts for 2009-10.
The Committee is calling for written evidence and is particularly interested in receiving evidence which addresses the following issues:
- DFID’s approach to assessing the effectiveness of aid and the role of DFID’s new aid watchdog
- Reduction in DFID’s administration costs
- DFID’s use of technical assistance and consultants and whether reducing this expense could be an appropriate target for the new Government
- The work of CDC, a DFID owned fund management business, which invests in the private sectors in developing countries especially Africa and South Asia.
The deadline for submitting written evidence is Friday 10 September. Individuals and organisations interested in giving written evidence may find the detailed guidance for evidence to House of Commons Select Committees particularly useful.
