IDLO believes that access to timely, comparable and comprehensive data leads to better decision-making, which in turn leads to greater effectiveness. This is why developing an improved framework for transparency and accountability has become a strategic priority for IDLO.
As part of this effort, IDLO seeks to establish greater trust between its donors and the communities and individuals with whom it works. IDLO recognizes it has a responsibility to demonstrate to the public that its operations are not only consistent with its values, but that its resources are used in an efficient, accountable and transparent manner.
Honest reporting of resources and achievements positively impacts the effectiveness of IDLO’s work. More broadly, transparency is a key factor in development and a thriving democracy.

The 2020 Management Plan (MP 2020) will implement the fourth year of IDLO’s Strategic Plan for the period 2017-2020 (Strategy 2020). MP2020 provides a blueprint for well-planned growth and institutional development. The Plan describes the thematic and geographic areas of work, including opportunities for innovation and scaling up of programs, policy advocacy, research and learning. It also sets out the objectives for continued institutional improvements to consolidate growth, put IDLO on a firm financial footing and establish its reputation as a leader in its sector.
IDLO promotes transparency and accountability both externally and through its internal policies. IDLO’s policies are aimed at promoting good governance, ethical conduct, and identifying and preventing waste, fraud, and abuse.
