The Fiscal Openness Accelerator (FOA Project)

The International Budget Partnership and GIFT have developed the Fiscal Openness Accelerator, a project to deepen work in improving transparency and enhancing public participation in fiscal policies. The FOA is supported by the US Department of State and the OGP Multi-Donor Trust Fund managed by the World Bank.

The objective of the project is to build the technical capacity of a number of selected governments to improve their fiscal transparency and to implement mechanisms for public participation in the elaboration of fiscal policies, while providing for dialogue between civil society and public finance authorities on the use of public resources.
