To provide MIX Market users with reliable social performance (SP) data, MIX has created a comprehensive desk review methodology that corroborates the social data FSPs report to MIX. MIX’s SP desk review relies on documentation that FSPs already have on hand, such as:
• Details on products and services offered
• Human resource policies documentation
• Studies or MIS reports related to social goals
FSPs can also use social ratings or audits to satisfy desk review criteria but these are not necessary to participate. FSPs can complete the desk review using only internal policy documents and reports.
