3.1 Oversight Institution's Role(s)

This section focuses on how to take on the different roles that you as political finance oversight institution may be assigned by legislation or other regulations. This includes advisory services, the publication of financial reports and your actions, policy development and work to increase public awareness about money in politics. Not all institutions in all countries will have all of these roles.

Note that compliance control mechanisms, handling issues of non-compliance, ensuring appropriate resources to deliver on your role and operational policies and procedures are dealt with in later sections.
