Conclusion and recommendations
Shita Laksmi wrote:
The organization is compliant with most of principles but should make edits to be accepted. The main areas for improvement are its transparency policies, related to: sources, funding, methodology and correction. Based on this assessment, assessor thinks that improvements for those issues are doable if Tirto willing to comply fully with this checklist. The other issue that needs a slight improvement is organizational compliance.
