Governance

We rely on a small executive team to advance our mission and are governed by an independent Advisory Board made up of a mix of renowned individuals from government, the private sector, civil society, the technology sector and development organizations.

We are multi-stakeholder in spirit but not in structure. To keep our organization lean, we are fiscally sponsored by the Fund for the City of New York. Fiscal sponsorship is a common mechanism in the non-profit sector that enables organizations to launch new programs without needing to complete the full process of establishing a new legal entity.

The Advisory Board appoints and oversees the Executive Director and our strategy and budget. It also contributes to fundraising and publicly champions open contracting.
