EITI is a signature initiative of the U.S. National Action Plan for the international Open Government Partnership and offers a voluntary framework for governments and companies to publicly disclose in parallel the revenues paid and received for extraction of oil, gas, and minerals owned by the state. The design of each framework is country-specific and is developed through a multi-year, consensus-based process by a multistakeholder group comprised of government, industry, and civil society representatives.
