Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network: Three years after FATAA: What’s the current state of U.S. foreign assistance data?
Sally Paxton, U.S. representative at Publish What You Fund, and George Ingram, MFAN co-chair and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, discuss the state of U.S. foreign assistance data after the passage of the Foreign Aid Transparency and Accountability Act (FATAA) in July 2016, writing, “The effort to publish quality U.S. data has been hampered by old systems that leadership has yet to solve. … FATAA was passed to improve the effectiveness and accountability of U.S. foreign assistance. … Years later, the consolidation process and the quality issues are clearly not an [Office of Management and Budget (OMB)] priority” (5/22).
