Grand Bargain transparency dashboard (BETA)

This bespoke dashboard was developed by Development Initiatives (DI) to support the Grand Bargain workstream on transparency in taking forward commitments made by signatories at the World Humanitarian Summit 2016. It is part of the project Monitoring the Grand Bargain commitment on transparency. The dashboard is based on a framework and methodology for measuring the quality of humanitarian data published to IATI which is proposed in DI’s baseline report, Implementing and monitoring the Grand Bargain commitment on transparency, and subject to final approval.

It is a tool that enables Grand Bargain signatories to:

  1. Check the quality of their humanitarian data published to the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) Standard and identify areas requiring improvement.
  2. Assess their progress in meeting the commitment to publish timely, high-quality, harmonised and transparent data on humanitarian funding.

The dashboard is currently in beta version and is updated on a daily basis. It uses the data that organisations publish to the IATI Standard on the IATI Registry.

We welcome your feedback. Please send any comments or questions to Liz Steele at liz.steele@devinit.org.

The monitoring framework and methodology

The monitoring framework and methodology explained below was developed by Development Initiatives based on feedback received from a consultation process with Grand Bargain signatory organisations and the wider humanitarian community from March to April 2017.

Methodology

The dashboard supports Grand Bargain signatory organisations to track:

The methodology measures the quality of humanitarian data an organisation publishes to the IATI Standard against five performance measures. Each of these performance measures has been given a percentage weighting that reflects its importance and/or relevance for the humanitarian community, based on feedback received through the consultation process.

Five performance measures:

Organisations are given a percentage value for each of the measures, which are then aggregated into a single total value for each Grand Bargain signatory organisation.

*Note that the percentage values for the coverage performance measure are currently not available. To calculate this, each Grand Bargain signatory organisation will be asked to provide a figure and an external reference (e.g. a link to their annual report) for their humanitarian spending for 2015 and 2016. Organisations will be contacted directly by the end of July 2017 and asked to provide this information.

Detailed methodologies for each performance measure can be found on the IATI website via the links below.

Performance measure Weighting Methodology
1. Humanitarian 25% Methodology
2. Timeliness 25% Methodology
3. Comprehensiveness 25% Methodology
4. Coverage 15% Methodology Additional information will be required from publishers (see above)
5. Forward looking 10% Methodology

Understanding the dashboard

Baseline: the total value for each Grand Bargain signatory organisation as of 1 June 2017.
Total: the total value for each Grand Bargain signatory organisation at that point in time.
Progress: the difference between the organisation’s total and baseline value. Any value greater than zero is coloured green.

An organisation’s data will be classed as humanitarian if either of the following apply:

Meeting the commitment

An organisation’s overall assessment is based on the total value by quintile ratings in accordance with the table below. If a signatory organisation has met the Grand Bargain transparency commitment, it achieves an assessment of ‘good’ (60–79%) or above.

Quintile Assessment
80% to 100% Very good
60% to 79% Good
40% to 59% Fair
20% to 39% Poor
0 to 19% Very poor
