  1. Tied Aid Status

    Comments Off

    The tied aid status shows whether the organisation states that this activity counts as “tied” (procurement is restricted to the donor organisation country) or “untied” (open procurement).

    Specifying location requirements in activity documents such as procurement policies or tenders is accepted as publishing tied aid status.

    For organisations’ lending directly to national investment agencies, an explicit statement demonstrating their aid is not tied is required. For IFIs and DFIs, investment codes clarifying their position are accepted. For private foundations, grant-making policies are accepted. If these are not available, the organisation’s procurement policy must clearly state if there are any eligibility requirements for contracts based on country of origin.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.

  2. Sub-National Location

    Comments Off

    The sub-national geographic location is information about where the activity is located within a country. This may be a province or city, or it could be geo-coded (whereby the precise longitude and latitude is published). It needs to be stated separately and explicitly.

    For activities that are relevant at a country or regional level, information on the location where the funds are sent to will be accepted for this indicator. For example, capital city for a country, or location information of the implementing organisation. This includes private sector investment, loans or debt relief payments, where the location of the relevant bank or organisation is accepted.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.

  3. Sectors

    Comments Off

    The sectors of the activity explain whether this is, for example, a health or education project. It does not count if it is just mentioned incidentally within the title, description, etc. It needs to be stated separately and explicitly.

    If projects are presented by sector on an organisation’s website, it must be clearly stated whether the organisation works only in those sectors that are listed.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.

  4. Finance Type

    Comments Off

    The type of finance shows whether the activity is a grant, loan, export credit or debt relief. This needs to be explicitly stated per activity, or once in a country strategy paper or clearly on the organisation’s website if there is only one finance type for the whole organisation, e.g. “all aid is grants”.

    Investment type (loan, equity, etc.) can be interpreted as equivalent.

    Statements clarifying investment type published anywhere on the website count towards publishing finance type in the web format.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.

  5. Aid Type

    Comments Off

    The type of aid shows whether the activity is classed as budget support, a project, technical assistance, debt relief, administrative costs, and so on. This needs to be explicitly stated per activity, or once in a country strategy paper or on a clear place on the organisation’s website if there is only one aid type for the whole organisation, e.g. “all aid is project-type interventions”.

    The advisory services business line/type of intervention (investment climate, public-private partnership, etc.), can be seen as broadly equivalent.

    Statements clarifying business line/intervention type published anywhere on the organisation’s website count towards publishing aid type in the web format.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.

  6. Flow Type

    Comments Off

    The flow type shows whether the organisation states this activity counts as ODA, OOF, climate finance or any other type of flow. This has to be explicitly stated per activity, or once in a country strategy paper or a single place on the organisation’s website if there is only one flow type for all activities, e.g. “all aid is ODA”, or “we only provide private grants”.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.

  7. Collaboration Type

    Comments Off

    The collaboration type shows how the activity is funded – whether directly from one government to another (bilaterally), through institutions such as the World Bank or UN (multilaterally), or otherwise. This needs to be explicitly stated.

    To be accepted, responses need to be stated per activity, or once in a country strategy paper or a clear place on the website, if there is only one collaboration type for the whole organisation, e.g. “all aid is funded bilaterally” or “we work exclusively with the private sector/non profits” or “all our activities are funded through pooled funds”.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.
