Curbing Corruption by Building Sustainable Integrity in 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. It will contribute to the progressive implementation of the Sustainable Development Goal 16 that calls for a substantial reduction of corruption and bribery in all their forms and for developing effective, accountable and transparent institutions at all levels. The Project is framed around the National Integrity and Anticorruption Strategy (NIAS) 2017-2020 and responds to the needs of its various actors and stakeholders in addressing the challenges for the effective implementation of NIAS, including insufficient capacities within central and local public authorities to ensure the uniform compliance with anticorruption and integrity standards and the lack of mechanisms for enforcing integrity standards in private sector.
The Integrity Law is the framework Law, adopted by the Parliament of Moldova in 2017, which regulates the integrity in public sector at political, institutional, and professional levels, the responsibilities of the public entities, anticorruption agents, and other authorities competent to build, enhance, and control integrity in public sector, as well as the areas for building integrity in private sector. The Law provides for 14 anticorruption/integrity policies which have to be implemented by the public institutions and public agents.
One of the policies is the observance the regime of restrictions and limitations related to termination of the mandate, labour or duty relations, and migration to the private sector of the public agents (revolving doors) regulated in the Art. 24. However, this measure has represented a novelty for the current anticorruption system in Moldova and lacks specific secondary legislation/normative framework for the application and enforcement. The secondary regulation needs to set specific competencies for the national stakeholders, anticorruption authorities and within public institutions, including control after cooling-off period.
The mobility between private and public sectors raises the risks of revolving doors or policy capture, when ex-public officials go to work for the sectors they used to regulate and are often hired not for their competence but for their connections and special access acquired while working in government. Revolving door may lead to conflicts of interest, regulatory capture and corruption, both during and after a regulator’s term in public office.
To strengthen the capacities of the National Anticorruption Centre (NAC) and other relevant stakeholders to apply the revolving doors regime, the Project seeks to hire an international consultant on the application and enforcement of the „Revolving doors” regime by public authorities and the private sector. The Consultant will provide a one-day training and a one day workshop on the international standards and best practices on the revolving doors application and enforcement for the National Anti-corruption Centre staff and other relevant stakeholders (public and private institutions).
Duties and Responsibilities
The main objective of the assignment is to strengthen the capacities of the National Anticorruption Center and other relevant stakeholders (public and private institutions) to apply the revolving doors regime by sharing the international standards and best practices on the revolving doors application and enforcement and advising on the most relevant enforcement mechanism in the context of Moldova.
The assignment will consist of a two-day mission. On the first day the Consultant is expected to conduct a one-day training for the NAC Prevention Division staff (20-25 persons) on the international standards and best practices in the field of the „Revolving doors” regime. On the second day it is expected for the Consultant to conduct a 2-3 hours workshop on best practices in applying the Revolving doors regime for the representatives of the relevant public institutions and a 2-3 hours workshop for the representatives of the private sector.
During the first training the consultant will present international standards on the revolving doors application and enforcement provided in the relevant conventions and guides; best practices in designing and applying concrete mechanisms for the enforcement of the Revolving doors regimes through regulations, reporting mechanisms, applied sanctions; recommendations containing guidelines on the enforcing mechanisms (reporting mechanism, responsible institutions, etc.) most relevant for the context of Moldova based on the international standards and best international/regional practices.
The second workshop day, which will follow the first training day for NAC will involve the presentation of the international standards and best practices on the revolving doors application and enforcement provided in the relevant conventions and guides; discussions on the most optimal reporting mechanism, enforcing institutional framework relevant for Moldova, based on the international standards and best international/regional practices. Final assessment report will be submitted to the NAC and UNDP after the second mission.
