Trust in the integrity of local government enables and supports the social licence held by local government to manage and protect resources on behalf of the public. This trust is exercised by many stakeholders including the public, regulators, suppliers and staff. Trust is hard won through deliberate decisions, processes and behaviour. It is also easily lost through indifference, ignorance and wilful wrongdoing. Improving transparency is an important buttress in sustaining trust. We hope this tool will help with that.
