Strengthening Institutions to Improve Public Expenditure Accountability was implemented over 5 years in technical partnership with the Results for Development Institute (R4D). It aimed at building the capacity of 14 participating developing country organizations to monitor and analyze public expenditure choices and processes, and to engage constructively with policy officials on various policy options in the three sectors of health, education and water. The program's ultimate goal was more capable, accountable, and responsive governments in the countries where the research stuies originated. It had an integrated independent monitoring and evaluation component which was undertaken by the National Opinion Research Centre, University of Chicago.
The program was fully supported by the Department for International Development (DFID), UK through its Governance and Transparency Fund (GTF). Thirty-eight organizations received funding through the GTF, of which GDN’s grant was one of the largest; five million pounds.
