Strengthening Action Against Corruption VFM strategy

Ghana

The Project

Strengthening Action Against Corruption – Ghana (STAAC-Ghana) is a programme funded by UK Aid that seeks to reduce the impact of corruption on Ghana’s poor through more active implementation of anti-corruption measures in the public sector. Its intended outcome is strengthened anti-corruption and accountability institutions working together to tackle corruption more effectively, which entails a combination of demand- and supply-side interventions

One of the key components is a comprehensive analysis of value for money (VfM). LAMP worked with the programme to develop a draft VFM strategy during the early stages of programme design in 2016 and revised the strategy and framework in 2017.  The revision involved a 1-day workshop with programme managers and M&E adviser to review the indicators and align the strategy with STAACs principles of flexibility and adaptability.  Support was also provided to train core staff on the programme to implement the strategy.

Highlights

  • STAAC follows a Problem-Driven methodology, therefore the VFM Strategy is designed to adhere to principles of flexibility and adaptability
  • Took a training of trainers’ approach to cascading VFM training to programme staff
  • Developed tools and templates to support implementation of the strategy

Client Testimonial

LAMP’s project objectives were achieved, and we received positive feedback from DFID on the final output. The report led to some interesting discussions with DFID and between partners. The number-crunching and the organization of data was excellent. I think we worked very well together. Jennifer and Susie were always prompt and responsive.
