This scoping study is a first step in the Joined-Up Data process. It suggests possible terms for the conversation around building blocks, highlights first steps that initiatives can take towards collaboration, and identifies questions to be addressed in future studies. The study explores the standardised disclosure requirements of five multi-stakeholder transparency initiatives (International Aid Transparency Initiative, Extractives Industries Transparency Initiative, Construction Sector Transparency Initiative, Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency, and Open Contracting) in search of potential areas for collaboration. It outlines the governance processes underlying the creation of these requirements to make clear where this collaborative development can take place.
