How does it work: governance and partnerships


BII Plus is underpinned by a set of principles, which ensures it operates with both rigour and flexibility:

  1. British International Investment value add
  2. Additionality
  3. Sustainability
  4. Accountability
  5. Impact driven
  6. Transparency
  7. Learning and agility

Project proposals are reviewed by the BII Plus Committee. The Committee currently comprises three independent members – Alice Chapple, Ian Barney and Kanini Mutooni – and four internal members; two investment directors, and two impact directors, for within and beyond portfolio BII Plus projects. A sub-committee of the British International Investment Board, the Development Impact Committee, oversees BII Plus. All BII Plus committee meetings are also observed by FCDO.

BII Plus resources are only used for projects where British International Investment is well placed to have an impact through linkages to our portfolio and investment strategies.

Please note British International Investment grants cannot be used to support any activities that are on the list of Excluded Activities as per Annex E of British International Investment’s Policy of Responsible Investing.


British International Investment Plus partners with NGOs, development consulting firms, research organisations and others in project implementation.  If your organisation has experience or expertise in our priority sectors, geographies or themes and is a potential partner to British International Investment, the team would be pleased to learn more.

Please note British International Investment Plus does not accept unsolicited proposals.
