The Aid Management Directorate publishes a scorecard each quarter to track the quality and quantity of aid information reported to the Government by its development partners.

The scorecard consists of four key metrics:

1. The total overall aid committed to Afghanistan, disaggregated by on- and off-budget assistance for the current year;
2. The proportion of off-budget aid that is reported to the Government, disaggregated by province;
3. The proportion of off-budget aid that is reported online in the Development Assistance Database; and
4. The two quality measures introduced into the ODA data cycle for 2015 that assess: (a) the quality of the Government's process to request aid information, and (b) the quality of the response received from development partners.

The Aid Effectiveness and Policy Unit operates under the Aid Management Directorate, Directorate-General of Budget of the Ministry of Finance. AEPU is responsible for promoting aid and development effectiveness in Afghanistan. The team handles relationships between the Government of Afghanistan and Development Partners (Donors, Parliament, Civil Society Organisations) in relation to aid effectiveness issues. The unit also acts as a focal point to international aid effective fora and organizations, in which Afghanistan participates, such as the OECD and g7+. In light of this, AEPU participates in evaluations and monitoring surveys to assess application and implementation of the principles of the Busan Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation and the New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States. It also reports on the extent of compliance of the international principles of aid effectiveness with donors and government policies.

In the policy area, the unit is responsible for developing new policies and leading dialogues with donors on issues related to management of aid from short to medium-term. The unit is responsible to ensure that the Kabul Process Commitments of aid effectiveness and supporting the National Priority Programs (NPP) are maintained and met. To follow up these activities, the unit is developing a new Aid Management Policy for implementation during the Transition period and beyond.

In the pursuit of the above, the unit performs the following major functions:

  • Develop policies and strategies to ensure aid effectiveness in Afghanistan.
  • To align donors' programs and projects with the results stipulated in the ANDS and NPPs
  • To monitor and evaluate the practical application of aid effectiveness principles (Paris Declaration, Accra Agenda for Action, Busan Partnership, New Deal)
  • To develop and implement the Aid Management Policy for Afghanistan in Transition.
  • To develop and implement tools to measure effectiveness of off budget financing.
