The Australian Government Australian Aid website contains a full list of the countries to which Australia provides aid. The site also provides information on Australia's bilateral and regional programs in those countries with which Australia has a development partnership. Information on partnerships with a wide range of groups such as regional governments, non-government organisations (NGOs), and Australian volunteer organisations is also available. Statistical data on overseas aid can also be found.

The Office of Development Effectiveness (ODE) was established by the Australian Government in 2006 to monitor the quality and evaluate the impact of the Australian aid program.
