Contracts and grant agreements between FCDO and the Global Disinformation Index (GDI) related to this project clearly set out activities and regions in which activities funded by FCDO will take place.

All FCDO programmes and projects comply with appropriate HMG programme management, commercial and financial rules and guidance, including ensuring value for money and monitoring and evaluation of project performance. The Minister for Europe, Leo Docherty MP, can confirm that the FCDO's GDI project complies with these rules.

GDI provide formal quarterly performance reports to FCDO and there are frequent informal contacts between GDI and our programme managers.
