The ILO allocates RBSA funds flexibly when and where they are most needed. As a priority, RBSA resources are allocated to ODA-eligible countries, and are aligned with the results-based framework of the ILO.
In 2022-23, nine governments supported the RBSA with contributions totaling US$ 31.6 million (as at 31 December 2023).

As part of a larger review of its funding options, the ILO was interested in learning how RBSA had performed. This study was commissioned by the ILO to explore the value and functioning of the RBSA, with a focus on two key questions from both an ILO and donor perspective: are unearmarked contributions effective as a funding modality; and what are the advantages and disadvantages in using this funding modality as compared to others available to the ILO? The review seeks to assess the potential of unearmarked voluntary funding for the ILO and its partners and, as necessary, how to adjust and further develop the RBSA modality.
