GB-CHC-1068839

Implementation Schedule

Organisations / agencies covered

Our IATI data covers Bond's grant-funded activities. Activities that are funded via unrestricted funding are not currently included. Organisations named within the data are Bond, DFID, NIDOS, EC (EuropeAid) and Gates Foundation. We will add new grant-funded projects as and when they occur.

Timeliness of Data

Our data is updated quarterly, up to one month after the end of the quarter. Our financial year is 1 April to 30 March. Incoming funds and disbursements are recorded as and when they are received or made. Expenditures are aggregated quarterly before April 2015, and monthly after this date.

Frequency of publication

Quarterly

Frequency of publication (extra comments)

We aim to publish updated data every 3 months.

Units of Aid

An activity is defined as a grant-funded programme because of the way our finance systems work currently. We will be moving to an activity = project in 2016 to give a richer picture of our work.

Segmentation of Published Data

no segmentation

Data Definitions and References

n/a

Field Exclusions

none - we use all of the fields that are applicable to NGOs bar the results fields. We would hope to start using the results fields in 2016.

Record Exclusions

If asked, we would exclude data based on a request from donors or our partners, on the basis of security and safety of staff. There may also be contractual obligations which stop us from publishing data, however we would work with contractors to ensure that openness is built into the contract. We have an open information policy which explains this further at https://www.bond.org.uk/open-information.

Thresholds

We aggregate expenditure over a time period (rather than a value) to make it more efficient for us to publish. Up to end of March 2015, the aggregation was done by quarter. From April 2015, the expenditure data is aggregated by month.

Other Constraints

none

Data Quality

Internally verified by programme and finance staff. This data is not audited/closed per quarter, and therefore may vary from the information given in the annual audited published accounts.
