As a professional organisation, Hivos wants to know on an ongoing basis if its work results in the desired outcome. Evaluation, progress monitoring, results measurement and control give us a better understanding of how we are doing. Most important tools in this regard are the measurement of results, the commissioning of project and programme evaluations and organising financial inspections.
Hivos also aims for the highest possible integrity in its contact with partners, suppliers, clients, among Hivos staff and in relation to business property. All Hivos employees are obliged to comply with the contents of the Integrity Policy, which is periodically reviewed and modified to ensure that it remains relevant to the needs and realities of the organisation.
