The aid management cycle
The management of Australia's aid programs follows a defined process known as the aid management cycle. The phases or segments of the cycle do, by nature, overlap and the delineation is simply to help you navigate quickly to the documents that most serve your needs.
The cycle is not static—documents are uploaded and refreshed as an initiative progresses through each phase of the aid management cycle*.
As Australia increasingly works through partner governments and/or development partners (e.g. NGOs, contractors and multilateral agencies) some of these documents may be named and/or prepared slightly differently by our partners. In these cases we will provide a link. In some cases there will be no equivalent.
Below are the types of documents you can expect to find under each initiative. The documents that have been uploaded will depend the type of initiative and how far it has progressed in the aid management cycle.
