Review of Norwegian Assistance to IPS
The objective of the review was to provide a basis for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to decide the objectives, size, content and form of continued Norwegian support to IPS and in particular assess the appropriateness of providing assistance to IPS through a framework agreement. The review includes an assessment of results of assistance provided in light of priorities of Norwegian foreign aid policies. In addition, the review provides advice to management of IPS on further changes required to improve cost-effectiveness while maintaining the quality. The review also provides an input to the broader discussion on the relationship between modern marketoriented media and development.
