Using data from 2004 to 2008−2012, we provide the first multi‐year agency monitoring of Development Assistance Committee (DAC), multilateral and United Nations (UN) agencies. Our results suggest that, on average, DAC donor performance has declined while multilateral and UN agency performance has increased. Specifically, multilateral and UN agencies are more transparent and specialized while DAC donors are less specialized and failed to improve in other categories. © 2020 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
