There is a wealth of information there but it is important to ask straight away - what other information does DfID have which they have decided not to publish?
In my most recent FOI request I obtained a full list of the project information stored on DfID's databases.
This includes the following fields:
Is an Annual Review Req
Ann Review Exempt Just.
Annual Review Due Date
Annual Review Prompt Date
Annual Review Authorised
Summary Review Authorised
Is a PCR Required?
PCR Exempt Justification
PCR Due Date
PCR Prompt Date
Impact Weight %
Impact Weighted Score
Total Impact Score
Project Purpose Score
Overall Risk score
Method of Scoring
Sources of Information
As far as I can make out these fields have not yet been included in the online database. Instead, under 'Aid effectiveness' they have included the following, rather irrelevant, indicators:
Use of partner country public financial management systems
Are partner country budget systems used?
Are partner country financial reporting systems used?
Are partner country audit systems used?
Are all 3 partner country public financial management systems used?
Are partner country procurement systems used?
Use of programme based approaches
Does the contribution fit within a single programme/budget framework?
Is the contribution led by the host country/organisation?
Is there a process for co-ordinating donors?
Are at least 2 partner country systems being used?
Is this a Programme Based Approach?
As mentioned last time, I have another FOI to determine the criteria the department used when selecting which indicators to be published. By coincidence the deadline for replying to that is tomorrow! I wonder if they were concerned I might steal their thunder...
