How to build a charity board assurance framework

A board assurance framework (BAF) is a structured approach for ensuring that boards get the right information, which is accurate and relevant, at the right time and with a level of assurance attributed to each source of data. A BAF is a single document that pulls together all relevant data pertaining to an organisation’s strategic goals, and the risks it faces. The BAF is more than another tool to measure and manage risks; it should be viewed as a framework by which the board can triangulate the information it receives and be assured of the veracity of data presented to it. This guidance provides details of a charity can build its own BAF.
