COMPAS Method - Quality Assurance method for humanitarian aid

This is a method used to evaluate the validity of open source humanitarian aid. The "compass rose" is used to evaluate the quality of projects. It can be used for developers to set up their project management and evaluators to rate a project. The four main qualities the project must encompass are:

1. The project reduces or eliminates the risk of negative impact. 2. The project responds to a demonstrated need. 3. The project aims for positive impacts beyond implementation 4. The project achieves its objectives.

There are eight minor qualities the project must meet.
