From 2012-13, MSI Integrity conducted a set of pilot evaluations into five MSIs in conjunction with Harvard Law School’s International Human Rights Clinic. The five MSIs evaluated were:
- Common Code for the Coffee Community (4C Association)*
- Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI)
- Fair Labor Association (FLA)
- Global Network Initiative (GNI)
- Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS)
These evaluations contributed to the development process for the MSI Evaluation Tool and Evaluation Methodology.
Prior to our 2013 Global Consultation and Review Process, MSI Integrity requested permission from the governing bodies of each evaluated MSI to release updated versions of the pilot evaluation reports as working drafts to inform the consultation process. Both 4C and EITI responded positively to this request. The Kimberley Process did not provide a response while the Global Network Initiative and the Fair Labor Association declined publication of their reports as working drafts.
These draft reports serve as an example of the long-form evaluation reports that result from an MSI Evaluation and provide contextual details, analysis, and recommendations for MSIs regarding their MSI Evaluation Tool assessment results.
*The 4C Association was renamed the Global Coffee Platform in 2016.
