Enhancing Working Group Transparency

Like taxes in many jurisdictions, self-reporting is always a tricky thing.

Furthermore, because Working Groups are grant recipients, we can’t actually take anything back once it’s been distributed. This is why creating more social awareness is key. Also, quarterly reports are already mandated for the GWG, as shown in the AIP-239: Working Group Guidelines & The Governance Working Group Charter; however, given that we are community-funded with a general lack of clarity on what we do, making these reports more robust will elevate them beyond standard accounting, and into comprehensive guides for the community.

They’ll also help voters make more informed decisions on candidates up for re-election and subsequent Working Group budget proposals.
