Robin Todd will deliver a presentation on his paper
Delivery Units: can they catalyse sustained improvements in education service delivery?


Despite the financial crisis in 2008, aid budgets among many multilateral and bilateral donors have been relatively protected, in some cases even rising. However, this has been accompanied by a significant increase in the focus on aid effectiveness demonstrated through scrutiny of impact and value for money. The Roadmap approach in Pakistan and the Big Results Now (BRN) approach in Tanzania are two recent attempts to introduce delivery units in developing countries. Both have links with the work that Sir Michael Barber did in the Prime Minister’s Delivery Unit, established by Tony Blair in 2001.This paper explores the use of both mechanisms as they have been applied and adapted in development contexts – one in Pakistan, one in Tanzania. We identify the political and financial conditions required to successfully establish roadmaps or delivery units; examine the extent to which these approaches can contribute towards developing a results-oriented delivery culture across government and examine whether these mechanisms actually improve aid effectiveness in terms of their cost effectiveness and value for money. Finally, we explore the potential for embedding these new approaches across country contexts in order to deliver sustainable development impact.
