Washington - A leading international aid transparency organization said the UN Development Programme (UNDP) "performed well" in its transparency efforts and said the agency should be congratulated.

Publish What You Fund ranked UNDP in the top 10 among 72 organizations in its 2012 Aid Transparency Index, noting that the UN's lead development agency is an original International Aid Transparency Index (IATI) signatory. "It should be congratulated for beginning publication to the IATI Registry in November 2011," the organization said.

UNDP is scheduled to provide an updated set of transparency data by the end of 2012 and move to automated reporting in 2013.

The Index, produced annually, ranks 72 aid organizations across 43 different indicators. Organizations include traditional multilateral and bilateral donors as well as private foundations and climate finance and development finance institutions.

Publish What You Fund is the global campaign for aid transparency, advocating for a significant increase in the availability and accessibility of comprehensive, timely, and comparable aid information.

UNDP Administrator Helen Clark welcomed the report, noting that the agency has made full transparency a top priority and is taking significant, ongoing steps toward the fullest possible public disclosure of its finances and programming.

"UNDP welcomes the results of 2012 Aid Transparency Index which show that we are continuing to make progress. We remain committed to full transparency and will continue to improve the quality, quantity and timeliness of the data that we make public, recognizing that full transparency is critical to retaining the trust of our partners."

UNDP currently publishes project information online from more than 100 country offices and reports financial flows in real-time from trust funds it administers.  In the most recent Global Accountability Report from UK-based independent think tank One World Trust, UNDP was awarded the top accountability score among 30 global organizations surveyed.
