Published by
Donor Committee for Enterprise Development (DCED)

This summary is useful to readers who are new to the DCED Standard, or who want a quick overview. The summary lists eight elements of the DCED Standard, and the control points which summarise the minimum requirements that would satisfy the auditors for each element.

The summary is also useful to readers who are familiar with the Standard, or interested in having their results measurement system audited. A scoring sheet is provided which can be used by auditors to assess whether the control point was met or not.
