We publish UK aid spend in Statistics on International Development (SID). Provisional spend is published in the spring and final spend in the autumn. The SID series are designated as National Statistics publications.

Upcoming statistical releases
The release timetable
DFID makes every effort to release its national statistics as soon as possible and in an orderly manner in line with the Code of Practice for Statistics. We publish official statistics on provisional and final UK aid spending normally in spring and autumn in Statistics on International Development. We also release figures for Gross Public Expenditure on International Development after SID.
The timing of these releases is largely determined by the timetable for reporting UK ODA figures to the OECD, when the Office for National Statistics make the latest GNI estimates available, and the timing for processing and quality assuring the spending data from DFID, Other Government Departments and other ODA contributors.
DFID engages with users of our National Statistics on an ongoing basis to explore issues of interest to specialist users and gain valuable feedback used to improve our National Statistics publications. We engage through public consultations on the statistics and we also have a statistics user group for receiving your ideas, feedback and comments. You can contribute to the user group here.
