British aid administration and the Central Policy Review Staff report

Briefing/policy papers

This briefing paper considers the recent Central Policy Review Staff (CPRS) report in relation to British aid administration. The CPRS report involves a review of those departments in London which are responsible for the formulation and implementation of overseas policies, as well as of those working overseas on behalf of the government. The report recommends wide-ranging reforms in British aid administration. This paper argues that although the CPRS report has been criticised by a House of Commons Select Committee, it will undoubtedly influence administrative practice for some years to come.
