​The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) remains committed to meeting the target for Official Development Assistance (ODA) Transparency laid down in the UK Aid Strategy, ie, to achieve a rating of Good or Very Good in the International Aid Transparency Index by 2020. We continue to make improvements to the way ODA expenditure is accounted for in our financial and programme management systems and processes. An independent audit by Publish What You Fund is underway and due to report on FCO ODA transparency in June 2018. The FCO will use the recommendations made in this review to make further improvements to its ODA transparency.
