Strengthening Integrity and Accountability Program 1 (SIAP 1)
Position : Consultant to Develop Blueprint of Anti-Corruption Prevention in the Private Sector
Working days : 30 days
Duration of Contract: February – April 2016
The role of the private sector in the fight against corruption is regarded as crucial. Private sector corruption erodes confidence in public and government institutions and deprives citizens of the capital needed for economic growth. On the other hand, the private sector requires legal certainty to determine the rules of the game and make investment decisions. This has been absent to date, causing a fertile ground for both coercion by government and voluntary corruption by businesses.
