This guidance note refers to the 2019 EITI Standard
Quasi-fiscal expenditures (QFEs) or off-budget expenditures can have a significant impact on the local and national economy, and on the government’s fiscal position. In many countries, state-owned enterprises (SOEs) undertake QFEs on behalf of the state such as payments for social services, public infrastructure, fuel subsidies and national debt servicing, which are not recorded on the national budget.
This expert report, authored by independent consultant Anwar Ravat, was originally commissioned to review the data assurance procedures used in EITI implementing countries and their cost, and to determine whether the use of Independent Administrators (AIs) safeguards the reporting of comprehensive and reliable data.
This discussion paper, authored by Alexandra Gillies, was commissioned to inform ongoing debate about the role that the EITI plays in addressing corruption.
Corruption remains a significant and harmful problem in the extractives sector. By raising the bar on transparency, the EITI has undoubtedly played a substantive role in addressing corruption, but the nature of this role has not always been well understood or articulated.
The EITI regularly monitors and reviews its procedures and results. This dataset was used to inform the EITI Board in its review of Validation, the EITI's quality assurance mechanism. For a brief analysis of this data, read our blog on what can be learned from three years of Validation results

Tracking payments by project from companies to government.
Project-level reporting, also called “project-by-project” reporting, means that companies disclose payments by project, for example, royalties paid on gold production at a specific mine. Having access to this data allows citizens and government officials to assess whether the government receives what it ought to from each individual extractive project. That’s because payments can be compared with the terms set out in the laws or contracts governing the project.
EITI implementing countries are finding innovative ways to contribute to gender equality in the governance of their oil, gas and mining resources. This brief identifies how gender relates to the EITI mission.
The EITI contributes to gender equality by:Improving governance of the extractive sector and mobilising revenuesPromoting equal and meaningful participation of women and men in the management of the sectorFostering dialogue and improving access to data on the sector.
The EITI has 24 member countries in Africa, almost half of the global total. Some of the first governments to join EITI and publish data in line with the EITI Standard were African. This report explores the EITI’s impact in Africa on a range of issues high on the regional agenda, including domestic resource mobilisation from extractives, licensing, beneficial ownership, state-owned enterprises and commodity trading transparency.
The brief provides examples from many of the 51 EITI member countries of how they have used their implementation of the EITI Standard to boost domestic resource mobilisation. While progress is being made, the brief concludes by setting out further ways in which countries can make use of the EITI to mobilise domestic resources.
The EITI contributes to domestic resource mobilisation by:
Improving tax administration.Identifying practices that could undermine taxation.Fostering dialogue about fiscal policies and reforms.
