Good governance is increasingly becoming a core topic for sport organisations at all levels. There are plenty of reasons to explain this trend, including the pressure on the proper use of public funds as well as the responsibilities of sport organisations towards their sports and other stakeholders. Furthermore, it has been shown that investing in good governance leads to an organisation with the right ethical behaviour, which is governed more efficiently, is more resistant to various risks and is more effective in reaching its objectives. Therefore, investing in good governance is investing in sporting success.

The general objective of the SIGGS project (spin-off of the S4G-Sport for Good Governance project funded under the Preparatory Actions) was to promote and support good governance in sport by providing practical guidance to National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and national sport federations (NFs) on how to implement principles of good governance in order to enhance their governance.

Specific Objectives of the project were as followed:

  • TO CREATE A STEERING COMMITTEE IN ORDER TO EXCHANGE EXPERTISE AND GOOD PRACTICE EXAMPLES

This Steering Committee consisted of a number of experts from different fields and with different backgrounds, including all the leaders of the various Work Packages.

  • TO DEVELOP EDUCATIONAL TOOLS TO PROVIDE PRACTICAL GUIDANCE TO NOCS AND NFS

Two “general tools” were developed. On the one hand, a self-evaluation tool was created with the main view of analysing strengths and weaknesses in the implementation of good governance principles by NOCs and NFs. On the other hand, Action Plans were drawn up for each principle.

  • TO ANALYSE THE NEEDS OF INDIVIDUAL NOCS AND NFS AND CUSTOMISE THE EDUCATIONAL TOOLS ACCORDINGLY

Following the results of the self-evaluation tool, “individualised tools” will be developed. First of all, Roadmaps will be drawn up. . In addition, national strategies will be developed including a list of key principles and key activities for the next years after the conclusion of the project.

  • TO ANALYSE THE NEEDS OF INDIVIDUAL NOCS AND NFS AND CUSTOMISE THE EDUCATIONAL TOOLS ACCORDINGLY

During the SIGGS Project, national training sessions will be organised in the countries of seven participating NOCs.
