Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency

The Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency (GIFT) is a multi-stakeholder action network working to advance and institutionalize global norms and significant, continuous improvements on fiscal transparency, participation, and accountability in countries around the world. I started working on GIFT as part of Innovations for Scaling Impact in 2011, and in early 2014 became an independent consultant on GIFT, contracted through the International Budget Partnership, who is acting as the fiduciary host of GIFT, managing funds from the World Bank to support GIFT. GIFT has also received funding from the Hewlett Foundation, Omidyar Network, and Metanoia Fund.

For GIFT, I was project manager, served on the coordination team, and helped facilitate the New Technologies and Open Data working group.
