There has been widespread agreement in the development community that donors should increasingly use so-called “country systems.” This includes country accounting and procurement systems. Yet, the movement towards the use of country systems has been relatively minimal. The recent Transparency International Global Corruption Barometer added fodder to the argument against the use of country systems. We’ve seen remarkable progress in the effectiveness of country systems. But, we are a provider of these systems, so I suppose that our views might not be entirely objective. I had a bit of twitter rant over the weekend from a story from Devex on aid modalities.
