The Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) launched a consultation today calling for members of the public to have their say on which areas of UK overseas aid they would like to see looked at.

ICAI is the independent body responsible for the scrutiny of UK aid, focusing on the delivery of value for money for the UK taxpayer, maximising the impact for recipients and promoting effectiveness of the UK aid budget.

Responses to the consultation will assist ICAI to develop their work plan for the next three years.

Andrew Mitchell, Secretary of State for International Development said:
“This marks a major step forward for the interests of the British taxpayer. The
Commission will shine a light on where aid works and where improvements are needed.

“Independent scrutiny and transparent analysis will help to ensure that value for money, results and accountability define everything we do.”

The consultation will run from 14 January for 12 weeks.
