This resource is a simple Excel calculator for working out the costs associated with using the IATI data standard. It is useful for organisations just starting out with IATI, or for those already using IATI and wanting to calculate the costs, for example, to decide on future investment or for recovering costs from funders. This resource is based on a business case framework originally created by a group of NGOs, including Bond, working with Accenture Finland. It is shared using Creative Commons license CC BY-NC-SA-4.0 so feel free to use and iterate - please share any new versions you create, or any ideas for improvement with the IATI MyBond group at or directly with the Bond Transparency team at [email protected]
