In 2011, the proportion of United Kingdom official development assistance (ODA) funding not disbursed by DfID was calculated to be 11%. 2011 ODA figures are still provisional and will be updated in DfID's statistics on international development in the autumn.

DfID's Statistical Release on Provisional UK Official Development Assistance as a Proportion of Gross National Income, 2011 (see link below) identifies the other government departments that disburse ODA and the types of assistance provided.
