The Bond and NIDOS Transparency Review helps organisations learn how transparent and open they are through the lens of the outsider looking in, and provides practical recommendations on how to increase their openness. It does this by examining a key channel for information sharing: organisations' websites.

This report covers the 2015 round of the Transparency Review, which involved 48 UK-based NGOs working in international development. It uses indicators developed from good practice guidelines and similar NGO transparency and accountability reviews in Europe and the US.

Indicators cover four areas of practice:

  1. Transparency policy
  2. Organisational information
  3. Governance and finance
  4. Activities and results

The next round of the review will run from January to March 2016. Sign up to take part.
