Agencies Need to Jumpstart Efforts to Meet Foreign Aid Transparency Deadlines

The United States is the largest single provider of foreign assistance, but the majority of US government donors still fail to publish data in a timely and detailed manner. On July 1st, Publish What You Fund published the US Aid Transparency Review, finding that despite some progress, many agencies are not on track to meet the December 2015 deadline to publish their aid data. USAID made great strides in the past year, but the Departments of State, Treasury, and Defense must redouble their efforts to meet the standards of the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). The US committed to increase transparency of foreign assistance in its first and second open government National Action Plans.
