All BEIS projects funded through Official Development Assistance (ODA) are monitored and reported upon in line with DFID good practice. In addition, we ensure independent evaluations of all our major programmes. At the fund level, BEIS funds are also subject to scrutiny from the Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) that reviews our ODA spending and its development impact.

BEIS research and innovation (R&I) ODA funds are administered by our expert delivery partners. These have strong monitoring and evaluation processes built into their delivery models.

BEIS International Climate Finance (ICF) publishes annual reviews of progress on implementation, financial reporting and value for money.
