The Project contributes to establishment of a strong and comprehensive corruption prevention ecosystem in the country. Its goal is to put into practice key preventive anti-corruption instruments: an effective asset declaration system for public officials, regulations that prevent and help manage conflict of interest, as well as tools for corruption-risk analysis. The Project takes a three-pronged approach by working to develop capabilities of key anti-corruption agencies, training public officials, and cooperating with CSOs at national and local levels.
- Assisting the development and implementation of regulatory frameworks for conflict of interest prevention and asset declarations. The project is called to assist the newly-established National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP), and to continue cooperation with other stakeholders that can help operationalize the regimes of conflict of interest management, asset declarations verification, and corruption risk assessment (including the Ministry of Justice, the Parliamentary Committee for Combatting Organized Crime and Corruption and others).
- Capacity-building of public service regarding new rules and regulations in the area of asset declarations and conflict of interest prevention. It includes the development of training materials and self-guided learning tools (including digital) for the newly adopted or modified guidelines, standard operational procedures, instructions, manuals and methodologies.
- Support to the subnational level anti-corruption initiatives. This includes:
a) capacity-building of local actors (including civil society and local government bodies) to oversee the implementation of the anti-corruption reform and effectively deal with the issues brought by the decentralization trends (devolution of decision-making, including for the areas with high risk of corruption), and
b) support to local monitoring and public awareness initiatives.
