Yesterday the Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) released its Report on DFID’s approach to its supplier market. ICAI granted a ‘green-amber’ score to DFID, reaffirming that its use of contracts is competitive and delivers value for the taxpayer.

CDR is holding elections for its Board of Directors. The Board is composed of at least 6 Directors. Any one in a management position within a full member company can stand to be elected on to the Board. Not more than one representative from a member company may serve on the Board.
