The cross-government Joint Funds Unit, as part of the governance processes within the Prosperity Fund, require programmes to submit financial and impact information on a regular basis, including formal annual reviews. These formal requirements have standardised formats that departments and programme teams follow. Departments will publish these annual reviews once complete, in line with government transparency commitments. The first set of programme annual reviews should be published within the next quarter.
As part of the evaluation service, interim programme evaluations will be conducted, which will feed into annual reviews. Independent evaluators will conduct these evaluations, quality assured through DFIDs ‘Equals’ process. Final evaluation reports will be published.
