We ensure that all programmes use appropriate input sector codes to categorise their expenditure. These codes can be allocated by percentage in the case of multi-sector programmes to allow spend to be attributed to different sectors. The UK’s sector codes are the same as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Credit Reporting System codes to allow comparison between donors. We ensure that all staff involved in project design and implementation have the required training and guidance on how to use the input sector codes.
