  • About
  • Why?

Our IATI Data Quality Validator compares public data with the requirements from IATI, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the British Foreign, Commonwealth Development Office - former Department for International Development. Organisations publishing IATI can use the tool to get immediate feedback on their data quality and completeness.

Organisations in the sector are more and more looking for ways to measure the effectiveness of their programmes. This is important both for reporting to their funders, as well as to know which decisions they should make to increase their impact. The tendency has been to report on qualitative data, as stories are always appealing. But how can you find accessible ways to use data to adjust the substantive course?

D4D installed the Spreadsheet2IATI converter and a Data Quality Checker at Aidsfonds. This allows us to easily publish our large project portfolio in IATI. The team was capable and thought along with us to provide us with what we needed.
