Financial Accountability

To ensure that CSC funds are directed to the aid outcomes or recipients for which they are intended and that effective safeguards are in place to protect and ensure value for money for the UK taxpayer the CSC has a Counter-Aid Diversion Strategy, and accompanying action plan which form part of the CSC’s Risk Management Framework. The Strategy is reviewed annually by the Audit and Risk Management Committee, informed by learning from the previous year’s Counter-Aid Diversion Strategy Action Plan and updates in legislation and best practice.

The CSC publishes details of all financial transactions over £500 on a quarterly basis, divided by month, as part of the UK government’s commitment to transparency in expenditure.
