Civil society will monitor the implementation of the National Anticorruption Strategy
Non-governmental organizations are invited to monitor how the anticorruption action plans envisaged in the National Integrity and Anticorruption Strategy for 2017-2020 are being implemented. The monitoring results will be included in the alternative reports to be submitted to authorities, international institutions and the general public. This activity is carried out under the “Curbing Corruption and Building Sustainable Integrity in the Republic of Moldova” Project, implemented by UNDP with the financial support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from Norway.
“This initiative intends to ensure participatory implementation and monitoring of the National Integrity and Anticorruption Strategy, but also to support civil society’s engagement in corruption prevention activities,” notes Olga Crivoliubic, Project Manager at UNDP Moldova.
The NGOs to be involved in the monitoring program will be selected through a competition based on project proposals. The monitoring will cover local anticorruption action plans, as well as sector plans and tackle areas which are vulnerable to corruption, according to the National Integrity and Anticorruption Strategy (police, customs, tax office, education, health, agricultural subsidies, environment, public procurement, administration and privatization of public property, local public administration).
The monitoring activities will be conducted during July 2019 – February 2020. The NGOs may access grants of 10,000 to 15,000 USD. The deadline for applications is the 5th of July 2019. The winners will be announced on the web page of UNDP Moldova.
The “Curbing Corruption and Building Sustainable Integrity in the Republic of Moldova” Project is implemented by UNDP in partnership with the National Anticorruption Centre and Ombudsperson’s Office, with the support of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The project will be implemented during 2019-2021 and will develop the capacities of the stakeholders from the public and private sectors, as well as from other civil society organizations, for efficient implementation of corruption prevention tools and standards.
