United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) publishes its budget and annual reports online as PDF files. Alhtough UNICEF publishes a transparency portal (open.unicef.org) and statistical data on a variety of topics, it does not publish it's budget and spending on its website as open data. Also, on its transparency portal it is hard to find downloadable machine readable datasets with detailed information on budgets and spending.



UNICEF joined IATI in 2012. It publishes datasets on a monthly basis programme-related expenditure but not internal management and support costs.


UNICEF publishes bidding opportunities on its website and PDF files of contract awards, including offshore procurement since 2001. The contract awards listed only include contracts at or above a value of $100,000. These are also published on the site of the United Nations Global Marketplace (UNMG) but not as open data.
