Volume 697: debated on Wednesday 9 January 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What systems they have in place to monitor the disbursement of £150 million for vulnerable children under their 2005-08 HIV AIDS programme; and how they propose to strengthen these systems. [HL670]

DfID is currently reviewing its system for tracking thematic expenditure following the results of the interim evaluation of Taking Action, the Government's Strategy for Tackling HIV and AIDS in the Developing World, published in May 2007, which suggested improvements. This review will feed into a new expenditure tracking system to be launched next year. This will be part of a new single corporate reporting system which will improve the quality and consistency of all DfID performance and expenditure monitoring.
