Responding to today’s National Audit Office (NAO) report Effectiveness of Official Development Assistance expenditure, Oxfam’s Jon Date, Head of Government Relations said:
“DFID is a world leader in reducing extreme poverty – providing urgent, life-saving relief for millions of people in serious need around the world. We share the NAO’s concern that the increasing proportion of the aid budget spent by other departments – and their lack of transparency – risks undermining UK aid’s effectiveness in helping people most in need.
“As the department with the best track record in both tackling poverty and being accountable for how money is spent, it is vital that DFID not only continues to lead the delivery of the UK aid budget, but also has a greater role in overseeing aid spent by other departments.”
