[Community-Discuss] Questions about transparency

Both are equally important.

1. Transparency for Corporate Governance :-)

2. Usefulness for Operational Efficiency or best use of always scarce organizational funds.

I'm sure however that there's already a system in place to do this. If so question then is how these reports are presented to the community. 

It goes back to the issue on Corporate Governance. Ideally such issues should be addressed by a Board Charter. Which is simply a written policy document that clearly defines the respective roles, responsibilities and authorities of the Board of Directors  (both individually and collectively) and management in setting the direction, the management and the control of the organisation.

May I suggest that we look at this document if there is one (which I couldn't find on the AfriNIC Website) and the respective body within AfriNIC (NomComm?) looks at updating it to reflect current realities and if there isn't one maybe it's time to have one?
