ACT Alliance is committed to being transparent in its work and in upholding the highest professional, ethical and moral standards of accountability. A key dimension is addressing the legitimate information needs of its stakeholders, especially the people with whom ACT works, its donors, and the general public. ACT is equally accountable to its members, staff and supporters.
As a general principle, ACT believes that information should be accessible and disclosed, subject to the limitations outlined in this policy. To build trust and confidence between ACT and its stakeholders, ACT believes interested stakeholders should be able to openly obtain relevant and reliable information on:
- who we are
- what we do
- where our money goes
- who and what holds us to account, and
- our overall financial position and performance
As an alliance of independent members, ACT encourages its members to increase the amount of quality information available to their stakeholders and especially to the people with whom they support in their humanitarian, development and advocacy work.
For the purposes of this policy, ‘information’ means any content in paper, electronic or other medium, concerning a matter relating to ACT Alliance.
The policy is available in English, French and Spanish.
