Oxfam is committed to being transparent in its work and accountable to its key stakeholders, in particular people living in poverty. We share information with people living in poverty, partner organisations, and the general public, and we are accountable to our staff, volunteers, supporters, donors, suppliers and host governments. The information we publish and how we respond to requests for information are important aspects of accountability.
The International Aid Transparency Initiative
We are currently working towards full compliance to the transparency standards of the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI).
IATI aims to make information about aid spending easier to access, use and understand. As a result we have started to publish basic information about our projects to the IATI data standard. This also reflects the commitment to transparency outlined in our Open Information Policy.
The information we are publishing relates to all our international projects and includes the project ID, project title, short description of the project, project start and end date, country of impact, place of impact (where available), per cent of strategic aims, expenditure in 2010/11, 2011/12, and prior, and revised budget for current and future financial years by project.
The third set of Oxfam GB internationally comparable data is now available in the IATI registry in XML format in line with IATI standards.
Since information in XML format contains raw data and may not be accessible by all, an Excel workbook of the data is also available below.

Explanation of the data set
The data published includes most international projects that were active in 2010/11 and 2011/12 and campaigns projects that were active in 2011/12. Projects have been omitted from the published list in line with the exclusions in our Open Information policy including for the reasons of staff security or because of harm to our operations.
In July 2013 we will publish more information (e.g. donor for the project) more regularly (quarterly). We will also look to improve the quality of the data published and reduce the level of exclusions.
