Systematically Tracking the Aid Tracking Systems

A call came out from the twittersphere asking whether a list of Aid Information Management Systems (AIMS) used in partner countries could be found.

I had previously compiled a similar list but had not updated it in some time. Thankfully, the good folk over at the IATI Secretariat had their own list handy. You can find that list here.

Armed with these two lists, I thought I might compile them and use this as an opportunity to become familair with Medium as a writing platform.

As noted previously, for a set of systems driven by an open government ethos, figuring out which countries use which systems, who built them, whether they are publicly accessible or even still functioning has been a time consuming process.

Compounding this difficulty is the fact that several countries seem to have begun with one system in the mid-late 2000’s, only to shift to a different provider or develop their own home-grown system later on. Also, sadly, many countries appear to have had a functioning system at one time only to see it fall into disrepair.

So, here is a map of AIMS that I’ve been able to compile. Further below is a table with more a more complete dataset, including non-functioning systems.

And here is a full list of AIMS I’ve manage to compile.

Please do let me know of any others and I’ll add them to this list!
