Evaluation of investment-level monitoring systems
Investment monitoring systems are at the foundation of DFAT's aid management system and external accountability reporting. These systems have been developed over time to support a performance culture that generates realistic and robust information on the performance of the aid program.
The purpose of this evaluation is to identify ways in which DFAT can improve its investment monitoring systems, and through this, the effectiveness of the Australian aid program.
The evaluation considered the characteristics of DFAT better-practice investment monitoring systems for programs delivered by managing contractors, and what factors contribute to or inhibit better-practice.
