There are five categories of funds managed or administered by the GS/OAS:
The navigation tabs on this website (immediately above) contain detailed financial reports for each of these funds. Each report contained under these tabs may be accessed by clicking on the external link.
The frequency on which these reports are updated (i.e. monthly, quarterly or annually) depends on the statutory requirements of each fund. Additional ad-hoc reports not contained in this website may be furnished upon official request from a Member State.
The Regular Fund is made up mainly of the quotas collected from the Member States and includes the contributions from other funds for technical supervision and administrative support provided by the General Secretariat. Funds received for unspecified purposes are treated as miscellaneous income under the Regular Fund. The purpose of this Fund is to finance: the regular secretariat and general support services provided by the Secretariat; technical supervision and administrative support to the programs; and multilateral integral development programs, as established in Article 32 of the Charter and as specified in the approved program-budget.
Specific Funds are made up of special contributions, including those received without purposes and limitations specified by the donor, from member states and permanent observer states of the Organization and from other member states of the United Nations, as well as from individuals or public or private institutions, whether national or international for the execution and or strengthening of development cooperation activities or programs of the General Secretariat and other organs and entities of the Organization in accordance with agreements and contracts entered into by the General Secretariat in exercise of the powers conferred under the Charter.

The OAS manages several activities identified as Service and Revolving Funds, which allows the OAS to handle certain administrative activities not directly related to donor agreements or Trust Funds. These funds include activities such as the Fund for Indirect Cost Recovery (ICR), the Building Management and Maintenance account, Tax Equalization and Parking Services accounts. Since 2005, OAS has segregated these funds from the Specific Funds’ financial statements to reflect the impact of those Funds.
Voluntary Funds have been reorganized into an OAS Development Cooperation Fund (OAS/DCF), which includes the former FEMCIDI and other voluntary contributions. The purpose of OAS/DCF is to contribute to the financing of national and multilateral cooperation programs, projects, and activities carried out under the Strategic Plan for Partnership for Development. OAS/DCF is financed through voluntary contributions from the Member States and other assets. The Fund's uses and limitations are defined in the OAS/DCF Statutes.
OAS/DCF consists of the Integral Development Account, of Sectoral Accounts established in accordance with the priorities of the Strategic Plan, and of the Reserve Account, which shall be established with 10 percent of the annual voluntary contributions of the Member States. The Reserve Account shall maintain for unforeseen activities a sum equivalent to 3 percent of the amount of resources existing in OAS/DCF.
