  1. Conditions

    Comments Off

    The terms and conditions of the activity may also be referred to as benchmarks, priors, or involve words such as “subject to…”. They are specific to an individual activity and explain what the recipient must do in order to be eligible for the funds to be released.

    The conditions should include loan repayment terms if the activity is financed by a loan.

    For IFIs and DFIs, this includes loan repayment conditions or special terms and conditions. In cases where the loan repayment terms are considered commercially sensitive, this information can be redacted. The reason for the redactions needs to be explicitly stated in detail and must clarify why the information is commercially sensitive and would cause material and direct harm if published.

    For private foundations and humanitarian agencies, statements setting out what the grant can be spent on are accepted.

    Templates for general terms and conditions are not accepted for scoring this indicator. If there are no policy, performance or fiduciary conditions associated with an activity, this must be explicitly stated.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on accessibility.

  2. Impact Appraisals

    Comments Off

    Pre-project impact appraisals explain the totality of positive and negative, primary and secondary effects expected to be produced by a development intervention.

    Environmental impact assessments as well as impact assessments which explain what objectives the project itself intends to provide are accepted.

    IFIs and DFIs tend only to publish impact appraisals if regulations require them to, but given the link they have to the eventual impact and results of the activity, all organisations included in the Index are scored on this indicator.

    For loans or private sector investment, risk assessments and the fiscal objectives detailed in the loan document are accepted. These need to be sufficiently detailed and include any criteria used to assess eligibility for receiving the loan.

    Humanitarian Implementation Plans (HIPs) and project plans are accepted for humanitarian agencies.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on accessibility.

  3. Results

    Comments Off

    The results show whether activities achieved their intended outputs in accordance with the stated goals or plans. This information often refers to logframes and results chains and may be within a specific results or evaluation section of the organisation’s website.

    Both current and completed activities are considered for this indicator. If the activity is ongoing then the expected results should be available. If the activity has ended then the actual results should be available within 12 months of ending.

    The score for this indicator is graduated based on format.
