We are undertaking a review of Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) performance in the Aid Transparency Index. As part of this, the FCO is in discussion with 'Publish What You Fund', and other Whitehall Departments. These discussions, consultations with the aid transparency community experts and our ongoing programme of work towards the Government target to be “Good” or “Very Good” by 2020, have identified a number of areas for improvement in both our data production and programme documentation.
