Implementation Schedule

Part I — Common Standard — Implementation schedule

Introduction

At the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan in 2011, countries and organisations resolved to:

"Implement a common, open standard for electronic publication of timely, comprehensive and forward-looking information on resources provided through development co-operation, taking into account the statistical reporting of the OECD-DAC and the complementary efforts of the International Aid Transparency Initiative and others. This standard must meet the information needs of developing countries and non-state actors, consistent with national requirements. We will agree on this standard and publish our respective schedules to implement it by December 2012, with the aim of implementing it fully by December 2015."

In early 2012, the OECD DAC Working Party on Development Finance Statistics (WP-STAT) and the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) formulated the framework for a common standard. It sets out good practice in reporting and publishing data. The proposal was endorsed by the Working Party for Aid Effectiveness (WP-EFF) in June 2012 (DCD/DAC/EFF(2012)9/REV) (PDF, 23 pages, 724 Ko).

The common standard combines three complementary systems and processes: the DAC's Creditor Reporting System (CRS) and the Forward Spending Survey (FSS) — two reporting instruments of the OECD — plus the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI), a self-publishing system with notifications to a registry. It is designed to make aid information more transparent along four dimensions:

  1. Greater availability of historical, current and future information on aid flows;
  2. More detailed information on aid projects and programmes (improved comprehensiveness);
  3. Broader coverage and participation (beyond ODA, and beyond traditional donors); and
  4. Improved timeliness and more frequent updates of development financing information.

The Questionnaire

This implementation schedule is intended for countries and organisations to specify what information they already report and publish and to present a timetable, based on their specific situation, of the feasibility of publishing more information; that is, when, what, where and how organisations will be publish more data. Progress will be monitored using an indicator (yet to be defined) related to the implementation of the common standard that will draw on these implementation schedules.

At the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan in 2011, countries and organisations committed to publishing a first implementation schedule by 31 December 2012. The schedules can be updated as implementation proceeds and planned dates become firmer.

The Implementation Schedule is composed of four parts:

  1. Introduction and instructions
  2. General questionnaire on comprehensiveness, timeliness and public availability of information. This part is to be completed by each country or organisation (Part II — General questions on comprehensiveness, timeliness and public availability of information)
  3. Detailed questionnaire on the availability of information at agency and activity level. This part, divided into two subparts, is to be completed by each publishing agency.
    1. Agency Data — Questions referring to the current and planned availability of published information at agency level (Part IIIa — Agency Data).
    2. Activity Data — Questions referring to the availability of information at activity level. This is a general assessment of the agency's ability to provide more detailed information on its activities (Part IIIb — Activity Data).
  4. A list of codes used by DAC systems and IATI and provided here for reference to help in completing Part IIIb

Part III is to be completed by each agency within a country that will publish data to the common standard. Thus there can be several Part III schedules for one country.

Each tab is made up of a table consisting of five columns (Information Area, Definition, Status, Publication date and a Publication notes field where the agency can fill out additional relevant information, e.g. thresholds, exclusions or definitions specific to the publishing agency):

1) Information Area — this column identifies each information item requested to be published.

2) Definition — this column contains a question on the availability of information in your system to publish based on a short definition on the specific information item taken from CRS/FSS/IATI guidance. It reflects the definitions which were approved by the DAC Working Party on Aid Effectiveness in June 2012.

3) Status — this column requests agencies to indicate, using a drop-down menu, the extent to which they are able to publish the information item. These are based on the following key:

Status: Fully compliant
Description: Publishing in full compliance with the Standard

Status: Partially compliant
Description: Publishing some data required by the Standard

Status: Future publication
Description: Data will be published at a future date

Status: Not publishing now
Description: Cannot commit to a date for publication

Status: Not applicable
Description: Not relevant to the agency

For anything less than full compliance, the agency is invited to provide further information in the publication notes. This can include:

4) Publication date — identifies when the agency did, or in future can, start publishing data for this information area. The date should appear in mmm-yy format (e.g. Jan-12). If any additional information needs to be provided about the date, it should be added in the 'Publication notes'. (this expands on the summary in Part II.1F of what improvements will be made and by when to indicate the date each individual item will be published).

5) Publication notes — a free text field where the agency can provide additional information, such as thresholds or exclusions specific to this information item, where internal definitions of a field may differ slightly (or significantly) from the common standard definitions, and any other relevant information not covered in the preceding columns or requiring further clarification.

Part II — General questions on comprehensiveness, timeliness and public availability of information

Country or Organisation Name: Canada

Date: June 2015

1. Coverage and Comprehensiveness

A. To which system(s) do you currently report/publish:

B. What is the coverage of your current reporting in terms of financial flows and what levels of aggregation do the reported data represent?

Flows covered / aggregation level (PDF, 75 pages, 640 Ko) Footnote 1

Activity-level

CRS

IATI

Semi-aggregate (by recipient country and sector/component)

CRS

IATI

Aggregate (by recipient country only)

CRS

IATI

C. i) What, if any, thresholds do you apply for aggregating CRS data?

If the total disbursement and commitment for a multi-sector or multi-country/region project is lower than $25,000 for the reference year, the project is aggregated to the main sector or country/region. However, projects remain listed individually and are never merged together.      

ii) What, if any, is the threshold on the value of activities below which you do not publish to IATI?

No threshold

iii) What, if any, rules do you apply to exclude information from publishing to IATI (e.g. based on national regulations)?

In accordance with Canadian legislation, information may not be published if it poses risks of injury to the national interest (e.g. Cabinet confidence and foreign relations) and/or to individuals (e.g. commercial confidentiality, security). This may affect whole projects or documents, or only parts of them.

D. i. If you publish through IATI, which agencies do the published data currently cover?

Table 1: Agencies do the published data currently cover
Name(s) of agenciesAgency coverageif bilateral donor: % of gross ODA
Canadian International Development AgencyPartial75% (of Canadian ODA)
Finance Canada (FIN)Partial10.7%
International Development Research Centre (IDRC)Partial4.5%

ii. In future, which agencies will your published data cover?

Table 2: Agencies will your published data cover
Name(s) of agenciesBy when?if bilateral donor: % of gross ODA
   

iii. In future, which agencies will your published data not cover?

Table 3: Agencies will your published data not cover
Name(s) of agenciesif bilateral donor: % of gross ODA
Others (including e.g. Royal Canadian Mounted Police, National Defense, provinces, imputed refugee and student costs)9.8%

iv. Please provide additional information related to current/future coverage of publishing (if necessary)

DFATD's IATI Activity Files contain information on projects published in the International Development Project Browser. The agency coverage ratio will appear lower than in previous years, as data on former Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade projects are not yet included; these projects will be added to the Activity File by late 2015.

The data published in the IATI files represent the best available information at the time of publication, whereas the annual CRS data is systematically vetted for quality assurance and represents official OECD statistics, published according to the deadlines in the DAC Directives.

E. What improvements do you plan to the coverage (types of flows) and comprehensiveness (level of detail) of your data by 2015?

Flows covered: ODA
Improvements: Continue to improve comprehensiveness and quality of information
By when? 2015

Flows covered: OOF
Improvements: Expand coverage of reporting to include more data on OOF and other private flows
By when? 2015

Flows covered: PRIV

2. Frequency and Timelines

A. Frequency: At what intervals do you currently report to the CRS / publish through IATI?

CRS: Annually

IATI: Monthly (DFATD & FIN), Quarterly (IDRC)

B. Frequency: At what intervals would you be able to report to the CRS / publish through a publicly available website?

CRS: Quarterly, Annually

IATI: Monthly (DFATD & FIN), Quarterly (IDRC)

C. Timeliness: How soon after data are captured and available internally can you publish them? (Please give the soonest any data are available to publish, even if they cover only part of your aid e.g. country project data.)

3. Forward-Looking Information

A. i) For how many years ahead do you provide information (i.e. what is the current practice)? Please indicate for each level of aggregation how many years into the future your outlook reaches.

Level of aggregation: Activity-level
committed / ongoing projects
Forward Spending Survey (FSS): 3-4 years
IATI: 3 years or length of project

Level of aggregation: Activity-level
also including planned / not yet committed projects
Forward Spending Survey (FSS):

Level of aggregation: Activity-level
also including remaining country budget envelopes
Forward Spending Survey (FSS): 3-4 years

Level of aggregation Semi-aggregate (by recipient country and sector/component)
Forward Spending Survey (FSS):

Level of aggregation: Aggregate envelopes (by recipient country)
Forward Spending Survey (FSS): 3-4 years
IATI: 3 years

ii) For how many years ahead can you legally provide information?

There are no legal impediments given that the figures are indicative and that they do not constitute a legally binding commitment on the part of the donor. However, given that departements' budgets are allocated on a 3-year cycle, DFATD does not expect to go beyond this planning horizon in the near future.

iii) Please provide additional information related to forward-looking information, including if you use a fixed (e.g. 3-year) or rolling (extended by one year each year) planning framework.

DFATD uses a 3-year rolling fiscal planning framework. Funds are allocated to the department on a 3-year cycle and country programs review program estimates based on approvals throughout the year. There is always some uncertainty surrounding country-level budgets.

B. If the above information relates to the DAC Forward Spending Survey (FSS), do you permit the publication of this information?

Yes

If no, why not?

C. What improvements are you planning to provide more forward-looking information, and by when?
