Aimed at understanding, addressing and managing the major governance, management and financial risks across its portfolio, the programme sought to improve efficiency and effectiveness through an adaptive and flexible approach covering a detailed review of log-frame results at the project level. It strengthened DFID & its implementation partners including Government of Ethiopia, multilateral agencies and INGO’s capacity to mitigate risks and ensure value for money. It delved into governance and financial management; monitoring & evaluation systems; VfM measures; safeguarding mechanisms etc. while building the capacity of DFID Ethiopia staff, including partner organisations, in effectively managing the programme risk.
We were engaged to review the governance and financial management of partner organisations, strengthen monitoring & evaluation systems, provide flexible, targeted technical advice and contribute to building the capacity of DFID Ethiopia staff, including, partner organisations, downstreaming partners and government departments.
- Improved control design and operating efficiency of implementing partners and DFID Ethiopia by minimising the exposure of DFID funds to critical, high fraud and corruption risks thereby ensuring that it reaches the intended beneficiaries
- Addressed governance and system flaws within the partner organisations and streamlined fund flow to the beneficiaries.
