"Curbing corruption by building sustainable integrity in the Republic of Moldova" Project will contribute to achieving a sustainable integrity and anticorruption system in the Republic of Moldova through the strengthened capacities of the public and private sector entities and the civil society for the efficient application and monitoring of national integrity instruments and standards.
Although an important progress has been made to put in place efficient anticorruption policies and mechanisms in the Republic of Moldova in the recent years, national and international opinion polls still attest a low trust in public institutions, while corruption persistently remains among three major issues to be solved during the last four years.
The National Integrity and Anticorruption Strategy 2017-2020 (NIAS) adopted by the Parliament on 30 March 2017, identifies among the main causes of systemic corruption in public sector the tolerance of the lack of integrity within public institutions, impunity of civil servants, violation of the public procurement rules and regulations, embezzlement thought public-private partnerships, etc.
To tackle the mentioned above problems and to enhance corruption prevention efforts, NIAS sets as the objective for its Pillar II “Government, Public Sector and Local Public Administration” strengthening the integrity, accountability, transparency, and resistance to corruption risks of the pubic agents, Government members, and locally elected officials. Specific instruments to ensure the institutional integrity are regulated by the Integrity Law no. 82/2017. One of the effective instruments of corruption prevention is the management of corruption risks, regulated by the art.27 of the Integrity Law. This instrument derives from the provisions of the UN Convention against Corruption, ratified by the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova in July 2007. The Convention provides that Each State Party shall, in accordance with the fundamental principles of its legal system, take appropriate measures to promote transparency and accountability in the management of public finances, including through Effective and efficient systems of risk management and internal control.
The National Anticorruption Center (NAC) has a defined mandate for the prevention and investigation of corruption and is entitled to participate at the development and improving of the legal and normative anti-corruption framework, as well as to offer the methodological support to public entities in strengthening the institutional integrity. NAC is also responsible for the coordination of the implementation, monitoring, evaluation and reporting of the NIAS. The 2017 NIAS Monitoring and Evaluation report released by NAC mentions the lack of capacities of public entities to perform the analysis of corruption risks and vulnerabilities and to identify the appropriate mitigation measures, particularly, at local level.
In this context, the UNDP Project ”Curbing corruption by building sustainable integrity in the Republic of Moldova” (further “the Project”) seeks to hire an international consultant to support NAC in developing methodological guidelines on the evaluation and mitigation of corruption and fraud risks within public entities.
Duties and Responsibilities
