The Department for International Development (DFID) has agreed to deliver savings in administrative costs of £4 million in 2008-09, £8 million in 2009-10 and £12 million in 2010-11, including through Operational Efficiency Programme (OEP) related projects. This commitment is part of DFID's overall value for money (VFM) programme.
Delivery against 2008-09 targets was reported in DFID's 2009 annual report. The report is available at:
A further progress report will be included in the forthcoming autumn performance report.
DFID is planning further efficiency savings in areas identified by the OEP, which will contribute to the £9 billion to be delivered across Government in the next spending review period.
