  1. Contact Details

    Comments Off

    This shows who can be contacted in relation to this activity. This does not have to be the contact information for an individual or project manager and could refer to a central contact or information desk. Contacts for either the funding organisation or the implementing organisation were accepted.

    This has to be stated alongside the activity or on an obvious “contact us” link alongside the activity.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.

  2. Current Status

    Comments Off

    This shows whether the activity is currently under design, being implemented, has finished or has been cancelled.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.

  3. Actual Dates

    Comments Off

    These are the dates that the activity actually started (and ended on, if the activity has finished). If there is only one set of dates but they are not explicitly stated as planned or actual dates, then it is assumed they are planned dates. Actual dates are accepted where specific events occurred, e.g. the date the project/programme agreement is signed, a board presentation or an appraisal date.

    Both month and year are required to score on this indicator in recognition of recipient countries needing to be able to map activities to their own financial year rather than the calendar year.

  4. Planned Dates

    Comments Off

    The planned dates are the dates that the activity is scheduled to start and end on. If there are one set of dates but they are not explicitly planned or actual dates, given that these are for activities which are current (i.e. being implemented at the time of data collection) it is assumed that they are planned dates.

    Both month and year are required to score on this indicator in recognition of recipient countries needing to be able to map activities to their own financial year rather than the calendar year.

    If the activity has started or has finished, the original planned start and end dates must be retained in addition to the actual dates in order to score on this indicator.

  5. Description

    Comments Off

    The description of the activity is a descriptive text, longer than the title, explaining what the activity is. Sometimes it is just a short sentence but could also be more detailed. Either is accepted.

    The description of the activity needs to contain a minimum of 10 words in order to be considered a description rather than just a title.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.

  6. Title

    Comments Off

    The title of the activity is the name of the activity. This is preferably the formal name of the activity, but does not have to be. The title needs to be complete with any abbreviations or acronyms explained.

  7. Unique ID

    Comments Off

    The activity identifier is a unique reference ID for the activity, e.g. a project number. It allows an activity to be referred to and searched for by a code, which can be used to retrieve the project from a database or filing system.

    The project ID must be stated clearly on the page. It is not sufficient if it is only stated in the URL. It must be numeric or alpha-numeric.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.

  8. Implementer

    Comments Off

    The implementer of the activity is the organisation which is principally responsible for delivering this activity.

    This information may not be available in all cases due to “legitimate exclusions”. For example, humanitarian agencies may not be able to reveal who the implementing agencies are due to security reasons. Such exclusions are accepted but need to be explicitly stated (in order to distinguish these from cases of simple omission).
