IATI encourages organizations to collect and publish information about their development and humanitarian activities to the IATI Registry using a data standard and widely-accepted framework.

Risk Management: Identify, Monitor, Mitigate, Evaluate

In our blog, Addressing the IMP’s five dimensions of impact using Amp Impact, we demonstrated how Amp Impact’s Submissions functionality (released in 2018) allows users to evaluate Risks by creating a Impact Risk Assessment template, assigning assessments, and reviewing/scoring them.

With help from the Open Road Alliance, a philanthropic initiative serving to “keep impact on track in an unpredictable world”, we’ve now added a Risk Management module into Amp Impact to track and manage risks that could impede the impact of an organization’s projects or grants. In addition to charitable grants and loans, Open Road promotes the long-term, sector-wide adoption of better risk management practices, providing tools, templates, and best practices for risk management.

Enhanced Grantee Reporting Experience

We have made enhancements to make the user experience more streamlined for grantees, implementation partners, program officers, and others Community Users to report qualitatively and quantitatively on impact and expenditure in a Salesforce Community! 

A user simply navigates to the relevant reporting period record (e.g. from a tab in the Community or from a link in an email alert). Then he/she can navigate between tabs on the single page to enter indicator results, complete a narrative report, upload updated financials, and upload files.
