A Quality Assurance method for humanitarian aid
The COMPAS Method is central to the whole of the Quality COMPAS. It is the first Quality Assurance method designed specifically for humanitarian aid.

Affected populations may be directly or indirectly affected by a crisis; they may be victims, and beneficiaries; but they are, above all, actors of their own destiny. Humanitarian action should not be the sole response to a crisis, but when implemented, individuals and communities should be at the very heart of these efforts. The various parties involved in providing assistance are responsible, together, for ensuring that the quality of aid is optimal in accordance with the project context.

The COMPAS Method was developed on the basis of this postulate.
