The OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) conducts periodic reviews of the individual development co-operation efforts of DAC members. The policies and programmes of each member are critically examined approximately once every five years. DAC peer reviews assess the performance of a given member, not just that of its development co-operation agency, and examine both policy and implementation. They take an integrated, system-wide perspective on the development co-operation and humanitarian assistance activities of the member under review.


Results management and accountability of US development co-operation

The current US administration has developed a strong focus on results. US policy documents establish and report on outcomes, as well as outputs. USAID is also seeking to reflect its local systems approach in its results measurement, but no agency yet has plans to align results with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Mandatory tools for managing programmes support the focus on results and their use in informing budgets and decision making. However, the results system is complex and burdensome – with too many indicators, too much reporting and too little alignment with partner country results.
