The Dashboard is maintained by the technical team of the IATI Secretariat. It has grown out of various projects to track IATI data around various facets and metrics.
The Dashboard is generated through a process that starts shortly after midnight UK time on the following days each month:
This is a two step process:
The generation process usually takes between 24 and 48 hours to complete.
The data is downloaded, and then there is a period of computing time to generate the statistics that inform the Dashboard.
Usually, there is a small period of time between the two. However, we do track this as sometimes things break - and the site fails to regenerate. If you spot something, please also let us know via via firstname.lastname@example.org.
