International Development Committee

Commons Select Committee

The International Development Committee (IDC) was established to scrutinise the spending, administration and policies of the Department for International Development (DFID) and monitors the expenditure of Official Development Assistance (ODA) by other UK government departments.

Since 1 September 2020, DFID and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have been merged to form the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO). The IDC continues to be responsible for scrutiny of UK aid and ODA expenditure, including by the FCDO, and taking forward the work of the Independent Commission on Aid Impact (ICAI).
