20. Why has there been more emphasis attached to the frequency of publication to the IATI Registry since the 2014 Aid Transarency Index? Why is frequency of publication only assessed for IATI data?

In 2014, we adopted a more nuanced approach to frequency, so we can monitor if donors are publishing monthly, quarterly or less frequently, in line with the Common Standard commitment and partner countries request for data at a minimum on a quarterly basis. This change was made based on Publish What You Fund’s public consultation on the Index data quality tests and based on the findings of a survey of the needs of Aid Information Management Systems (AIMS) used in partner countries. Only IATI data is scored on frequency. Unfortunately, it is not possible to take into account frequency of publication for data published in other formats because the information is not always time-stamped.
