The Development Assistance Database (DAD) is a widely used Aid Information Management System (AIMS) developed by Synergy International Systems, Inc for Aid Management, Public Investment and National Budgeting. It has been established in more than 30 countries world-wide in close cooperation with UNDP and respective governments to promote transparency and accountability of funds, results-driven decision-making, and aid effectiveness. DAD is a Web-based information collection, tracking, analysis and planning tool for use by national governments and the broader assistance community, including bilateral donors, international organizations, and NGOs. The proven DAD package of solutions offers a number of key advantages to user countries, including the following:
- Analytical reporting tools
- Data visualization
- Results-based aid management
- Online and offline capabilities
- Integration with financial management and other third party systems
- IT and Aid Effectiveness Advisory Services
- Sustainable results
The use of the DAD by national governments to strengthen the effectiveness of aid management fulfills basic tenets of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness by allowing each country to take ownership and lead the process of international assistance, ensuring that it is aligned to their needs and priorities. Implementation of this technology has empowered governments to truly drive the aid process and direct donors to priority sectors, regions or strategic goals.
