Aid statistics

Channel of delivery

 

I. Introduction

The channel of delivery is a key concept in DAC Statistics. It serves to identify the recipients of multilateral aid and the implementing agencies of bilateral aid.

 

II. Definition

The channel of delivery is the first implementing partner. It is the entity that has implementing responsibility over the funds and is normally linked to the extending agency (see paragraph 32 of the CRS Directives) by a contract or other binding agreement, and is directly accountable to it. Where several levels of implementation are involved (e.g. when the extending agency hires a national implementer which in turn may hire a local implementer), report the first level of implementation as the channel of delivery.  Where activities have several implementers, the principal implementer should be reported (e.g. the entity receiving the most funding). In the case of loans, report the borrower (i.e. the first entity outside the donor country that receives the funds).


In the case of intra-governmental transfers, it is important to distinguish between i) use by the central aid authorities of other public sector agencies in the donor country for implementation of specific activities and ii) transfers of funds, together with the spending (budgetary) authority, to other public sector agencies.   For i), report “donor government” as the channel of delivery.  For ii), the agency that receives the spending (budgetary) authority should designate its first implementing partner as the channel of delivery.

 

III. Broad Channel Categories (Channel Parent Codes)

DAC Members agreed to revise the channel categorisation at the formal WP-STAT meeting in June 2010. These revised channel of delivery categories and sub-categories (see below) are also available here and will take effect in 2011 for reporting on 2010 flows.
