The Members’ Assembly
The members’ assembly is formed of all members of IATI. They include nearly 90 donor and developing country governments, multilateral institutions, philanthropic foundations plus civil society and private sector organisations. Our members entirely fund the work of IATI, ensuring our initiative can achieve real change in global transparency.
The assembly approves strategic decisions, including recommendations on the budget and work plan received from the governing board. The chair of the governing board is also the chair of the members’ assembly.
The Governing Board
The governing board is made up of seven representatives elected by IATI members. The board presents options and makes recommendations on IATI’s overall strategic direction to the members’ assembly, oversees the implementation of IATI’s workplan by the secretariat and ensures the initiative operates effectively, according to its mission, vision, and values.
Technical Advisory Group (TAG)
The technical advisory group provides expert guidance on developing IATI’s approach to open data and the IATI Standard. The TAG is a multi-stakeholder community of publishers, developers, data users and transparency advocates. IATI’s TAG Chair is elected by the TAG community and represents this community on the governing board.
IATI is administered by a secretariat made up of five organisations. Secretariat staff manage the day-to-day running of IATI and are accountable to the members’ assembly, governing board and TAG. For further detail on the bodies governing IATI, see the Standard Operating Procedures.
Standard Operating Procedures
IATI’s Standard Operating Procedures draw together and codify all decisions taken by IATI relating to how the initiative is run. It is intended as a living document which is updated after each members’ assembly to reflect new priorities or operating realities.
