Is the use of IATI mandatory for all implementing partners of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs?
Yes. As of 2016, the Ministry has made an IATI publication mandatory for all activities, including core funding, as a replacement for progress reporting. For activities implemented by multilateral agencies, recipient country governments or local partners of Embassies, reporting by IATI publication may not be possible immediately. For these partners the transition towards full IATI compliance may take some time. The Ministry is supporting the transition process where possible. It is expected that all implementing partners of the ministry will be compliant in the course of 2017.
