25_F_Australia DFAT

OVERVIEW

Have they met the Busan commitment on aid transparency? No.

In November 2013, AusAID was integrated into the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) that is now responsible for implementing Australia’s aid programme. DFAT’s regional focus is upon is near vicinity in the Asia-Pacific region.

ANALYSIS

Achievements and progress
  • DFAT remains in the ‘fair’ category having made a modest improvement to its score since 2013.
Challenges and room for improvement
  • A number of organisation-level indicators (allocation policy, organisation strategy and total budget) are no longer published to the IATI Registry but are published in other formats.
  • On performance related indicators, results are published only sometimes while budget identifiers, impact appraisals and conditions are not published at all.
  • Activity related-documents are also under published with only objectives currently being published to the IATI Registry.

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Australia should aim to publish monthly to the IATI Registry.
  • It should prioritise the publication of a full organisation file to the IATI Registry and should aim to publish more activity level information in the IATI Standard.
  • It should develop an open aid portal to promote use of its data by all relevant stakeholders.
