Identifying red flags in planning processes for water infrastructure, from undue influence, inadequate consultation or feasibility studies, to misuse of budgets.
WHEN TO USE IT
To improve planning processes by identifying red flags in early-stage decision-making and planning processes for water and sanitation infrastructure.
To monitor infrastructure planning and hold authorities accountable.
HOW IT WORKS
FIIP is a data framework, with indicators and data standards for integrity.
It covers early phases of infrastructure projects (Strategic planning, Screening and appraisal including feasibility studies, and Budgeting and approval).
It evaluates 7 risk areas: from undue influence in decision-making, to misaligned priorites, or manipulated budget processes.
HOW IT WAS DEVELOPED
FIIP was developed with CoST – Infrastructure Transparency Initiative with support from the Inter-American Development Bank.
It has been piloted in Latin America where it helped highlight possible areas of improvement for procuring entities related to: feasibility studies, use and correlation of data on service levels to aid decision-making, and compliance with procedures.

HOW TO USE IT
We are currently piloting the framework further and open to collaboration with procuring and implementing agencies.
