All aid provided by the Department for International development (DFID) has specific targets against which progress is formally monitored annually and at the conclusion of a programme. DFID officials in-country carry out frequent and detailed discussions with the Government of Rwanda about programme delivery, risks and mitigation.
Before any UK aid is provided to Government, an independent detailed fiduciary risk appraisal (FRA) is conducted to assess the risk of funds not being used for the purposes for which they were intended. These risks are monitored and updated at least annually.
Furthermore, in Rwanda, a country performance assessment framework (CPAF), agreed by donors and the Government, annually monitors progress against specific targets set out in Rwanda’s Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy.
