The Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) publishes an Annual Report for each Financial Year, which includes the allocated budget and amount spent. The CSSF Annual Reports for 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19 are available on gov.uk: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/conflict-stability-and-security-fund/about#important-documents.

The CSSF Annual Report 2019/20 will be published by January 2021.

The CSSF was established in 2015 and did not produce an Annual Report for Financial Year 2015/16, but the allocated budget is published in this report from the Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy: https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/jt201617/jtselect/jtnatsec/208/208.pdf and the amount spent is published in this performance review from the Independent Commission for Aid Impact: https://icai.independent.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/CSSF-Approach-Paper.pdf.
