Four dimensions of accountability: transparency, participation, evaluation, and complaint and response mechanisms. To be accountable, an organisation needs to integrate all four dimensions into its policies, procedures and practice, at all levels and stages of decision-making and implementation, in relation to its key stakeholders. The GAP Framework is meant to complement legal and regulatory frameworks, sector-wide accountability initiatives, codes of conduct, international norms and other standards that are already in place.
