Responsible, accountable, and transparent governance is a central challenge for societies seeking to provide equal opportunity and socioeconomic stability for their citizens. The Organization for Responsible Governance (ORG) empowers civil society and citizens; and introduces key policy and legislation to ensure the actions of the country’s leadership are subject to oversight and serve the best interests of the Bahamian people.

With input from the Accountable Governance sub-committee ORG identified several policy and programming objectives crucial to achieving better governance: enacting a Freedom of Information Act, Introducing Whistleblower and Ombudsman Legislation, enforcing the Public Disclosures Act, establishing a public consultation process for legislation, and creating a candidate questionnaire to encourage informed voting.
