Observations
Devolution has contributed to an overall improvement in aid delivery
Devolution has contributed to improving the speed of delivery, the commission being able to both commit and also disburse increasing volumes of funding
Although some indicators point to improvements in the quality of aid, the commission's systems for assessing quality do not allow firm conclusions to be drawn
Financial management procedures implemented since devolution are increasingly robust
While devolution has contributed to improving the aid delivery, it is not bringing all the benefits it could, especially in relation to improving quality
There is still scope for the commission to improve its allocation and use of human resources in delegations
Commission's headquarters have only a limited capacity to support delegations in improving quality despite the significant efforts made by EuropeAid
Monitoring, reporting and evaluation are not yet sufficiently developed in relation to aid quality and financial management
