Despite making contributions to multilateral entities for decades, the U.S. has never conducted a thorough audit of its contributions to these organizations. It’s time to conduct an audit to ensure that the U.S. is spending its money funding these organizations effectively and aligning its multilateral entity funding with its foreign policy goals.
Budgets across the federal government are already published and subject to Congressional approval — so information about U.S. funding of multilateral agencies is already publicly available. There’s no need for this bill. If anyone wants to know how much the U.S. is spending across all multilateral agencies, they can simply do the math themselves.
