DFID assesses the value for money (VfM) of all of its expenditure through non-governmental organisations (NGOs) on an annual basis. Every project is subject to an annual review in which a judgment is made as to whether the funding is achieving good VfM. This involves consideration of how they minimise costs and maximise results. Achieved results are compared to pre-agreed outputs and outcomes, with metrics suitable to the project and policy area, and organisations must demonstrate how costs are kept at a proportionate level.
