How SIGGS tool
can help your team?

Regular self-assessment:
the idea is to use the tool as an instrument for regular self-assessment of your organisation since good governance is a continuous process.
Since answers are stored automatically, it is easy to consider the answers that were provided during the previous assessment.

One account versus multiple accounts:
the number of accounts for each sport organisation is unlimited. In this regard, the organisation can decide to do an internal consultation beforehand and to put the data into the tool afterwards as the consensual view of the organisation.
Another option is for different representatives of the organisation to do the assessment separately and to consider the different points of view afterwards.

Experience on good governance:
due to different levels in the methodology, the tool is equally of benefit for organisations with profound experience in good governance measures as well as organisations that are at the start of a good governance process.

Any level of professionalisation:
the tool is beneficial for any level of professionalisation ranging from non-professional federations with only volunteers to fully professional federations and NOCs with various paid staff members.

How the SIGGS Self-evaluation tool
was developed.

The SIGGS self-evaluation tool was developed by a consortium of NOCs in the framework of an EU-funded project.  ​The Support the Implementation of Good Governance in Sport’ (SIGGS)  Project ran from January 2015 until December 2016 and was officially supported by the Erasmus+ Sport Programme of the European Union. 

The SIGGS Project of the EOC EU Office has officially been selected by the European Commission as a “success story”.


The general objective of the SIGGS project is 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 the 4 principles of Good Governance.
