Organisational reviews serve an important control function and should enable Norad to take an informed decision on support and identify important dialogue and follow-up issues. In addition, the reviews are expected to help grant recipients understand their strengths and weaknesses, and provide recommendations on how organisational capacities and systems could be strengthened.
