KPIs, strategic goals[edit | edit source]

Update: Governance aspects of KPIs and goals - what is the process for deciding which proposed projects should be supported by WMUK, given the potential charitable impact when considered against resources available and required?

Transparency[edit | edit source]

A quarterly narrative is required from us for transparency compliance against the transparency KPI "Transparency compliance as determined by Govcom against published transparency commitments". This relates to Strategic goal G2b.2: "We have a high level of openness and transparency, and are recognised for such within the Wikimedia movement and the UK charity sector". See Strategy monitoring plan.
