The Consultancy is planned within the Strengthening Public Integrity and Transparency at Sub-National Level Project and Public Enterprise Integrity Project.
The Strengthening Public Integrity and Transparency at Sub-National Level Project (SPIT) is primarily funded by the Good Governance Fund (GGF) of the UK Government and implemented by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). As part of the UNDP BiH’s Rural and Regional Development Sector’s portfolio, the Project has an overall objective to strengthen public integrity and transparency at sub-national level by introducing systemic improvements in targeted sub-national governments’ anti-corruption efforts. The Project output will be achieved through four main activities: support to strengthening transparency and integrity standards in Sarajevo and Tuzla cantons; support to transparency and integrity in the conduct of local governments; development of local government association capabilities in the areas of transparency, integrity and accountability; and implementation of recommendations for improved transparency and integrity of public enterprises and institutions. The main beneficiaries of the project are Sarajevo and Tuzla cantonal governments, with relevant line ministries and institutions/offices, twelve local governments, entity local government associations, four publicly owned enterprises and public service providers as well as resident non-governmental organisations working on anti-corruption and fraud prevention. The Project is expected to ultimately benefit the citizens of all authorities where the intervention will be implemented due to greater public confidence in their institutions and improved efficiency and effectiveness of services rendered.
The Project intended results are as follows:
The Public Enterprise Integrity Project (PEIP) is part of the Local Development Programme and is a Norway-funded initiative aimed at improving the performance and fiscal responsibility of public companies and institutions, operating primarily in Sarajevo Canton. The Project entails the design and administration of a series of in-depth reviews, looking at how key companies and institutions discharge their mandates and manage the public funding they are entrusted with. In addition to the reviews, the Project entails the design and deployment of a Corruption Risk Mapping tool, aimed at identifying the prospective corruption exposure of public entities, as well as a comprehensive capacity building programme for key personnel of both public corporations and line ministries, tasked with overseeing their work.
As part of the intended “Result 1” under SPIT project, the Project will work in Sarajevo and Tuzla cantons, supporting impact assessment of the Law on Preventing and Combatting Corruption in the Sarajevo Canton in line with the FBiH Regulation on Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA), support to drafting and implementation of the Sarajevo Canton Regulation on Regulatory Impact Assessment, and provision of training on this regulation. Furthermore, the Project will support the development of the methodology for integrity risk mapping, and development of Integrity plans in selected institutions of Sarajevo Canton, risk mapping and development of Integrity plans in selected institutions in line with the approved methodology, and development of a methodological regulation on risk mapping and integrity plan development. In addition, the Project will provide technical expert assistance to implementation of regulation on managing grants and donations in Tuzla Canton and conducting assessment of public employment practices and supporting implementation of recommendations in Tuzla Canton.
As part of the intended “Result 4” of the SPIT project and “Result 3” and “Result 4” of the PEIP intervention, the Project will aim at supporting the implementation of selected actions and measures in 7 public enterprises and institutions in Sarajevo Canton, for which performance reviews have been conducted.
