So as we all know the DAO system is far from completely in place, not only but also because of lack of funding, and I have this idea for improved transparency in the DeVault organization.
Lex from bizness DAO has been doing a great job of making the transparency reports but they are have an inherent problem: lex is a member of a DAO.
I have been thinking that for the future we must be flawless and do our best to show that we keep a clean house as this is one of our key features.
So I was thinking we could implement something like an ombudsman.
It is basically a person not involved in the organization who can review transparency and deal with mediations in situations that involves DAO members etc.
I imagine that it is someone in a position like this that should write the transparency reports and that these reports should contain information about the DAOS, their members and what they are doing so to make it easy for the community to get an overview. you could argue that much of this information is already available but it is spread out and incomplete.
I imagine that we could have those monthly transparency reports and then maybe a quarterly (every 3 superblock) also have a report on the state of the organization of DeVault ie the DAOs.
The ombudsman could for example contact the dao members and write a short report based on their answers.
I feel that in general we need some sort of mechanism for holding DAO members responsible to the community and a DAO transparency report like that would help. It is not meant as policing. I think that the DAOs as dezentralized organizations should internally decide on their structure and have a representant as now but we do get paid and it is not always clear to the community what we do.
The ombudsman could also hold a key to the multisig payout wallet to have an independent person involved in payouts.
Maybe the reports lex do should be called financial transparency reports.
Maybe we from the DAOs should make a quarterly/biannual/annual report on our work.
Let me know what you think.
And @Lex you know its not personal.
