The Aid Transparency Index assessment takes place every two years. This is the first time that BEIS has been included and I am pleased the Department’s performance has been ranked as ‘Good’. BEIS remains committed to the transparency of its ODA spending and is examining how to improve its rating in future assessments. The International Development Strategy, published in May, recognised the importance of transparency and the Government has committed to the strengthening of transparency and accountability of UK ODA in its updated National Action Plan under the Open Government Partnership, updated in August.
