    Case Study Description Providing public access to details on aid programmes and projects in Nepal is part of the Government's commitment to transparency, accountability and aid effectiveness. The aid management platform has been implemented by Development Gateway, UNDP, DFID, AusAid, and USAID have supported the Government of Nepal with funding. The Ministry enters key data for all on-budget projects, i.e. projects for which the donor funding passes through Government. Development partners enter the key data for all off-budget projects, i.e. projects for which the funding does not pass through Government. Development partners also enter planned and actual disbursement data for all projects, both on-budget and off-budget. They update the planned disbursements for each project once per year, making projections for between the next one and three years. They update the actual disbursements four times per year. Line Ministries update information about the implementation progress of all the on-budget projects that fall under their respective Ministry.
