This week, the IoF, the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association and the Fundraising Standards Board have published a tender to review the way fundraising self-regulation works.

The move comes after the Public Administration Select Committee’s report, which backed self-regulation for fundraising but called on the sector to do more to increase public confidence in fundraising. The Office for Civil Society has awarded the IoF a £20,000 grant to fund research into fundraising self-regulation, which we are tendering in partnership with the FRSB and PFRA.

The review of self-regulation will cover the governance structures of each of the three organisations, as well as more specific tasks such as looking into the FRSB’s ability to act against non-members that break the codes of practice.

As our joint statement released alongside the tender says: "The review was sought by, and will be commissioned jointly by, the IoF, the PFRA and the FRSB and will look to make recommendations to ensure the IoF, the FRSB and the PFRA are fit for purpose and sustainable on an ongoing basis. This is part of the work of the IoF, the FRSB and the PFRA to work more closely for the
benefit of the sector as a whole."

The deadline for submissions is 5 July and the tender can be downloaded from the IoF website.
