The Transparency and Accountability Inititative has partnered with a range of organizations in this capacity building endeavor:
The Natural Resource Governance Institute (formerly Revenue Watch Institute) is a non-profit policy institute and grantmaking organization that promotes the effective, transparent and accountable management of oil, gas and mineral resources for the public good. Through capacity building, technical assistance, research, funding and advocacy, we help countries realize the development benefits of their natural resource wealth.
Global Integrity seeks to play a catalytic role in promoting accountability and transparency reforms by developing tools that address the needs of the public, private, and civil sectors equally.
Our comparative advantage is in developing, testing, and sharing methodologies and technologies for generating cutting edge information that can inform governance reform efforts across those three sectors. We seek to empower local stakeholders – including government, civil society, and the private sector – by providing best-of-breed research and reporting for making more informed decisions about how best to allocate limited financial and political capital.
We also aim to encourage others to embrace innovation and experimentation, especially a faster pace of conceiving, piloting, refining, and field testing new approaches to anti-corruption and transparency. We hope to change what we perceive to be an aversion to failure in the anti-corruption community of practice. We view failure as an important part of the learning process that can be used to fuel rapid innovation.
In short, we are an innovation lab for the transparency and accountability community.
The Transparency Policy Project seeks to understand and improve disclosure systems that protect the public. It is affiliated with the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. The Project has constructed a framework for assessing the sustainability and effectiveness of systems designed to provide the public with critical information to improve public health and safety, reduce risks to investors, minimize corruption, and improve public services. The Project is directed by Archon Fung, Mary Graham, and David Weil.
Aspiration helps nonprofits and foundations use software tools more effectively and sustainably. We serve as ally, coach, strategist, mentor and facilitator to those trying to make more impactful use of information technology in their social change efforts.
