Sweden commissions efficiency review of Sida

To promote better organizational and economic efficiency of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), the government has mandated Sweden's Agency for Public Management and the National Financial Management Authority to review Sida’s efficiency, management, governance, and follow-up support. 

This review was commissioned following a recent announcement by the Swedish government that Sida’s administrative appropriation in the 2020 national budget would be increased to further improve both the quality and efficiency of Sweden’s bilateral official development assistance (ODA). 

The review is expected to be completed by November 30, 2020.
