After implementing the Aid Management Program, governments can access more data of higher quality, produce reports in less time and with less money, and coordinate more closely with donors. AMP systems currently record approximately 18,000 unique aid activities, accounting for over $134 billion in actual commitments and an estimated 15-20% of Official Development Assistance (ODA) worldwide.
According to post-implementation surveys, government staff perceive AMP data as more credible, accessible, and comprehensive than data gathered through prior methods. Some AMPs are available to the public online, and many governments produce regular ODA reports using AMP data (for examples, please visit the Resources page). Burundi, for example, uses AMP to collect data for an annual report on development aid, and Malawi uses AMP to produce a monthly report on aid commitments and disbursements (see more examples by exploring country case studies).
Other AMP governments are increasing transparency by making aid information available to the public online (see, for example, AMP Kosovo). With better information and reporting capabilities, governments that implement the Aid Management Program are able to coordinate more closely with donor partners on implementation of development projects, and empower their populations to engage in informed debate on the management of foreign aid resources.
