There are constant and growing pressures on governments and organizations around the world to demonstrate the results of their programs and activities. Governments are increasingly asked to be more responsive to demands from internal and external stakeholders for good governance, accountability, transparency and greater efficiency and effectiveness. As demands for greater accountability and results have grown, there is an accompanying need for useful and useable results-based monitoring and evaluation systems to support the management of policies, programs, and projects.
After “velvet revolution” Armenian Government demonstrated strong political will and adopted ambitious and far-reaching Anti-Corruption Strategy and its 2019-2022 Action Plan. The package includes wide-range of activities aimed at revamping or establishing, where needed, anti-corruption legal and institutional framework, putting in place relevant mechanisms for corruption risks identification, mitigation, and prevention, developing institutional tools and mechanisms for corruption monitoring, developing sustainable model of anti-corruption education etc.
Ministry of Justice, as a leading agency in the sector, established separate Department on Anti-Corruption Policy development and Monitoring and adopted Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) methodology on Anti-corruption reforms. The Department, inter allia, is responsible for carrying out monitoring and evaluation over implementation of anti-corruption processes, anti-corruption strategy and action plan, as a result of monitoring implementing activities related to preparing of reports, as well as drafting recommendations and submitting them to relevant bodies aimed at implementation of measures prescribed by Strategy and Action Plan.
In November 2019, the Commission for the Prevention of Corruption (CPC) of Armenia launched operations and began building the foundation for a new institution to prevent corruption. Armenia’s 2019 launch of CPC was an important milestone in Armenia’s post-Velvet Revolution policy to create new laws and institutions to prevent corruption and build integrity across government and society.
As in many developing countries, existing anti-corruption laws and anti-corruption bodies in Armenia needs to strengthen institutional, organizational and individual capacities. To this end, it is essential to further strengthen current M&E system for implementation of 2019-2022 Action Plan deriving from the Anti-Corruption Strategy initiated by Ministry of Justice. By identifying and resolving issues in current system, this project aims to bring better performance in enhancing transparency and accountability in the whole government functioning that is targeted by the Strategy and Action Plan. This system is also expected to be participated in a whole-of-society approach by bringing together government agencies, civil society organizations, citizens, private sector stakeholders as well as foreign actors including donors and international organizations. In order to make the revised M&E system functioned as intended, it is also crucial to train relevant stakeholders for improving the implementation of the system aimed at contributing to capacity development for responsible officials.
