OVERVIEW

UNICEF should be congratulated for beginning publication to the IATI standard in June 2013. UNICEF released its initial implementation schedule in November 2012 and updated it in June 2013. It currently plans to publish to 94% of IATI fields by the end of 2015, including added-value elements such as results data and project documents by April 2014. UNICEF is currently publishing to IATI at the “intermediate results” level (equivalent to output level results), its primary operational level. UNICEF’s 2010 Information Disclosure Policy reaffirms commitments made in the Executive Board’s 2009 Accountability Report.

ANALYSIS

UNICEF scores 44.3%, placing it in the fair category. It is one of the biggest improvers in the 2013 Index. It does well on activity classifications and basic information but performs poorly on performance data, for which it does not receive any points. Of the 22 indicators that take format into account, just under two thirds are published in machine-readable formats. UNICEF publishes all organisation planning documents and some project documents on its website but does not currently provide links to these in its IATI data.

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • UNICEF should publish more information in its IATI organisation file and, where available, it should also start publishing forward-looking budget data to IATI. It should segment its IATI data into one file per country or region.
  • It should implement its ambitious implementation schedule, aiming for full implementation of the IATI standard and monthly publication by the end of 2015.
  • UNICEF should provide a further level of hierarchy in its future IATI data to present its operational projects, contracts and transaction data.
  • UNICEF should work with others to ensure IATI is useful for humanitarian aid actors, including working with the IATI Technical Advisory Group to improve the standard by developing a humanitarian extension which captures the information needed in the humanitarian sector.
