Summary "The objective of this audit is to assess whether AusAID's management of the expanding aid program supports delivery of effective aid. The audit focuses on progress of AusAID's internal reforms to achieve this objective." --p. 14. "The ANAO has made six recommendations aimed at improving AusAID's management of the aid program, and strengthening accountability for aid funding and its results. In particular, AusAID can improve management of human resources by addressing its long standing problems with regards to the level of staff turnover, further increasing management responsibilities of locally engaged staff, and continuing to progress workforce planning and development - thereby building internal capacity to deliver aid. Completion of country program strategies that are central to, and record, aid allocation decisions would help make Australia's increasing levels of aid more focused and predictable. Further, the development of a comprehensive policy on using partner government systems to deliver assistance would facilitate increased use of these systems, thereby helping to strengthen them and providing a scalable means of delivering aid. Finally, clarification of AusAID's approach to classifying administered and departmental expenses, and improved external reporting, would help make aid program running costs more transparent to external stakeholders." -p. 16
