MISEREOR uses the funds available to it responsibly, economically and efficiently, and regularly accounts to the individual and public donors providing it with the money. A multistage monitoring system guarantees that the stewardship of funds remains transparent both within and outside of the organisation.
MISEREOR has set both itself and its partner organisations clear rules. All areas of work are regularly and consistently monitored. Internal guidelines for staff members and line managers contribute to ensuring that any forms of abuse or corruption are prevented. The requirement of maximum transparency also includes the regular publication of data on the source and use of funds. Furthermore, the effectiveness of the development work performed in the projects supported by MISEREOR is also reviewed by external consultants, and documented every year in a public evaluation report.
Corruption hurts the poor disproportionately by diverting funds intended for development, undermining a Government’s ability to provide basic services, feeding inequality and injustice and discouraging foreign aid and investment.
