|G2b.1 We have effective and high quality governance and resource management processes, and are recognised for such within the Wikimedia movement and the UK charity sector.||Progress on targets in the Hudson and Chapman governance reviews||All targets that we agree with have been completed and independently reviewed.||See narrative||See narrative||See narrative||All the recommendations from the Hudson review have been implemented. Fourteen out of the fifteen recommendations of the subsequent Chapman review have been implemented, with the final one a work in progress. In Q3 a third external review was carried out to assess the charity's progress, with the findings due to be presented to the board at the December meeting.|
|Progress towards PQASSO 2||Complete all internal preparations for PQASSO 2 ready for external accreditation||See narrative||See narrative||See narrative||We organised a scoping meeting, where we started to look at assessment of the charity. This has led to initial identified work areas needing improvement - they will be picked up in the future. Two half-day sessions were planned for Q4 for a more detailed analysis. Delays in mentor training owing to CES, organisation developing PQASSO system, being taken over by National Council for Voluntary Organisations. (). This will influence the overall timelines of the project.|

Two half-day sessions planned for Q4. Delays in advanced mentor training owing to CES, organisation developing PQASSO system, being taken over by National Council for Voluntary Organisations.|

|Transparency compliance  as determined by Govcom against published transparency commitments||Narrative||Eval: 2/5 this quarter||Eval: 4/5 this quarter||Eval: 3/5 this quarter||Admin problems this quarter have severely delayed publication of several sets of minutes, including those of the AGM and the September and October board meetings. This has resulted in those meetings not being as transparent as we intended in a timely manner.|
|G2b.3 We have high quality systems to measure our impact as an organisation.||Progress towards full implementation of automated and manual tracking/measuring systems ||Narrative + eval score ||Eval: 55-60% achieved||Eval: 60-65% achieved||Eval: 65-70% achieved||The main source of automated data is CiviCRM. Staff are regularly using the database to set up events so that people can register there rather than on a wiki page. The database is now set up to allow people to register themselves as volunteers in the same way people register for events, and this process will be tested in Q4. Processes for recording interactions with partner organisations have been drafted and are being implemented, though recording partnership interaction is still currently being done substantially after the interaction takes place.|

|G3.3 Legislative and institutional changes favour the release of open knowledge.||Responses to EU and UK government policy consultations.||Narrative||See narrative||See narrative||See narrative||We've published a position paper on copyright with the Free Knowledge Advocacy Group European Union (FKAGEU). We've met with the UK IPO head of copyright to learn about the new orphan works rules. We've signed the Lyon Declaration on Access to Information and Development. We hosted an advocacy group meeting here the day after Wikimania, attended by about 12 people. We also helped the WEASEL on wheels advocacy roadshow at Wikimania. The relevant papers are linked from our Advocacy page here.|
|Involvement in EU and UK advocacy activities; Involvement in advocating legislative change within GLAM, Education, and other organisations||Narrative + eval score ||Eval: 4/5||Eval: 5/5||5/5||The EU advocacy involvement continues to be strong, this quarter via responses to the consultation papers (see above). We are putting a voice in the open knowledge debate, and so in the long run aiming to change the policy for better access to information. In the UK, we are arranging meetings with Alex Boyd of the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee of the EU (which has some responsibility for copyright and intellectual property) and Claude Moraes MEP for Q4. Claude Moraes is head of a committee on civil liberty in the European Parliament, and we will be able to use these links in the future advocacy work.
The work of Wikimedians in Residence to influence the policies of their host organisations was successful this quarter. At Cancer Research UK, work on embedding of the release of media on open licenses is progressing very well, with a new model release form for non-paid models adopted. This incorporates a tick box to opt-in to allow release of images of them on open licenses. A decision as to whether to place CRUK’s online cancer information text copy under a Creative Commons BY-SA license is due to be made at a meeting on 18th November. Embedding new working practices to continue after the grant period (late 2014/early 2015) is developing, especially with statistics department and around releasing media – and possibly web copy - on open licenses. With this in place, we may be able to ensure sustainability of the project after the residency ends.
Ally Crockford from National Library of Scotland (WIR) met with new NLS Chief Executive and National Librarian John Scally to discuss Wikimedian in Residence projects and open access at the Library. These internal conversations regarding the releasing of digital content onto open licenses may result in a more open policy at the institution - we are able to be a part of the conversation at the time of the new Chief Executive thanks to having a WIR at the organisation.
In a project area that show how policy work can affect content, Pat Hadley at York Museums Trust encouraged YMT to be embracing a specifically open image policy. The institution will subsequently be releasing c.40,000 images under PD or CC-BY-SA licenses.
|G4.1 There are robust and efficient tools readily available to enable the creation, curation and dissemination of open knowledge.||Number and availability of the project tools we host or support||Narrative||See narrative||See narrative||See narrative||Wikimedia UK hosts QRpedia and the Virtual Learning Environment. A scoping exercise was carried out to assess the role of technology within the charity on strategic and operational levels. Currently, the VLE has not been fully launched. The report notes: "The VLE project in particular has been a difficult process; communication has been undereffective due to lack of technical management." QRpedia continues to be maintained by the charity, and is in the same condition it was in Q1.
The report is worth reading for additional information on the tools the charity supports.
|G4.2 There are robust and efficient tools readily available to allow WMUK - and related organisations - to support our own programmes and to enable us to effectively record impact measures.||Uses  of the internal or supporting tools we host or support||Narrative||See narrative||See narrative||See narrative||As in Q1 and Q2, the main tools are CiviCRM, piwik, and the Virtual Learning Environment. We use CiviCRM as often as possible when organising events to make reporting easier. There has been limited technical development on these tools in the quarter, so that state of the tools remains much the same; the VLE is however not yet fully launched. Delays in installing the SmartDebit module have hindered fundraising efforts.|
