III- Transparency
To maintain transparency and strengthen democratic governance, we have established and implemented strictly our Code of Ethical and Conduct. (See our code in yellow box of Home page). Principally we have formed a Management Committee (see governance structure in leaders’page) grouping all project managers, admin manager, financial manager and president of staff association, whose chairman is rotatively changed at the end of a mandate of 6-month, among the project managers. The management committee is assisted by other five sub-committees including staff association, asset committee, procurement committee, internal auditor and permanent secretariat in charge of ethical code observance, complaint resolution in conformity with the conflict of internal policy and the complaint resolution process. Monthly general meeting is a forum for routine reflection and evaluation of all organizational operations, enhancement and adaptation to the requirement of the fields. Annual general meeting with presence of the Board of director’s members is the supreme institution of the organization in democratic governance during which all staff members have a free say to reinforce the rule of law and heighten participation activities and common decision making, after common general reflection and evaluation, and then determining new alternatives or change for organizational growth.
Organizational leadership in OEC is a real balance between the Board of directors, executive director, and management committee and staff association which is the saver and protector of democracy, human rights, justice and well-being of staff in OEC. For instance the job description of the chairperson of the board of directors has been successively signed by Chair Person of the Board of Directors, Chairman of Management Committee and executive Director, while the job description of the executive director has been signed by the executive director and the Chair Person of The Board of Directors.

To assure good orchestration of OEC in democratic governance’s line, leading to accomplish the organizational vision, mission and values as having stated in the by-law and the Code of Ethical Principles, we have determined clearly the different types of conflict of interests, prevention of conflict from appearing and conflict resolution between leading bodies of the organization based on democratic way and pragmatism.

The management committee is the main activist organ to prepare strategic plan, missions, goals, objectives and program of the whole organization. They manage, lead and supervise the daily activities implementation of the organization, including recruitment and dismissal of staff. They can exercise relation with all donors and institutions supporting the organization. All new recruitments shall be proposed by the Executive Director and approved by the Management Committee, then submitted to the Board of Directors for endorsement. OEC practices then collegial authority in the sense of ”We are working in team wining dedicated to accomplish the tasks determined by vision and mission” with continuous empowerment of staff through life skills education held in monthly meeting for working harmony.
