Antecedentes

The project Support to Anti-Corruption Efforts in Kosovo (SAEK) II is expected to have a positive impact on reducing the level of corruption in Kosovo by strengthening monitoring and oversight mechanisms of institutions to perform in an efficient, transparent, accountable, and gender sensitive manner. The project will ensure greater transparency and accountability of those institutions responsible for delivering public services and create the necessary requirements for more participatory governance at the local level. 

According to Kosovo’s Anti-Corruption Strategy 2013 – 2017 adopted by the Kosovo Assembly, all public institutions must develop and implement an Integrity Plan. Up to date, there are limited number of central and local institutions that has complied with this requirement. 

For this purpose, UNDP has developed Integrity Management System (IMS) manual and will assist selected municipalities to instill integrity planning in their daily work. The IMS process will consist of the 4 following stages: (1) identification of risks to determine where corruption is likely to occur and will impose the greatest costs, (2) assessment of the level of risk by evaluating the probability of occurrence and the damage levels related, (3) setting priorities in the intervention required, and (4) development of organizational specific integrity plans that contain targeted anticorruption measures. In order to ensure national ownership, selected Municipalities will be closely engaged throughout the process. 

Under the direct supervision of the SAEK II Project Manager, Municipal Experts have the overall responsibility to assist the Project Team in achieving project results (outputs) as defined in the approved Project Document and annual work-plan.
