Oxfam America Honored with Accountability Award

By

Oxfam America today was honored by its peers for adhering to the highest professional standards of accountability.

InterAction, the nation's largest association of international aid organizations, presented its 2006 Standards Award to Raymond C. Offenheiser, president of Oxfam America, at the association's Annual Forum in Washington, D.C.

"We are delighted to receive this award in recognition of Oxfam's commitment to accountability and transparency in all of our programs," Offenheiser said. "As a member of the international development community, our standards for accountability are integral to the work we do globally. Because Oxfam relies on private donations, we consistently seek to ensure public trust by maintaining these standards in all facets of our work."

InterAction's Annual Forum in Washington this week, April 10-12, was expected to draw more than 600 representatives from international aid groups as well as government and multilateral institutions. The keynote speaker is President Clinton, the UN Special Envoy for the Tsunami Recovery.
