Conduct of Adam Smith International


The International Development Committee has concluded an investigation of allegations of improper behaviour by Adam Smith International relating to the submission of written evidence to an inquiry into the allocation of resources for UK Aid an concluded that that the leading aid contractor went well beyond what was appropriate.

ASI ‘acted improperly’ by: overstepping the mark in soliciting the submission of written evidence, including applying pressure to beneficiaries to submit evidence with implied or explicit references to continuation of funding and failing to make clear the extent of its involvement in the submissions of evidence.
