The Committee is calling on DFID to carefully examine its growing multilateral expenditure and ensure that it has thoroughly examined other options such as greater use of local NGOs and sector budget support. The report says DFID should ensure that its bureaucratic procedures do not prevent it from making use of effective, small NGOs to undertake projects.
