Transparency signs anti-corruption agreement

| Transparency International PNG

PORT MORESBY – Transparency International Papua New Guinea (TIPNG) and the Interim Independent Commission Against Corruption (IICAC) have signed a memorandum of understanding formalising a partnership to develop an anti-corruption strategy for IICAC.

The initiative is part of a TIPNG project to promote anti-corruption and integrity strategies, which is funded by the European Union to restore and reinforce public trust in national integrity institutions.

TIPNG is a member of Transparency International a global movement committed to fighting corruption.

The PNG chapter advocates against corruption and promotes transparency, good governance, honesty and accountability both in private and public sector dealings.

“This new partnership signifies the proactive steps being taken by the IICAC Office to respond to the TIPNG’s call to enable greater integrity in the operation of their mandate,” said TIPNG head, Arianne Kassman.

“The anti-corruption strategy will support their mandate to administer and facilitate the establishment of the ICAC proper.”

The IICAC Office has been established to administer and facilitate the establishment of an ICAC Proper.

It will develop regulations and internal systems and processes to enable ICAC to combat corruption.

TIPNG will work with PNG agencies to develop internal anti-corruption strategies which will be shared with citizens and journalists.

This work is informed by TIPNG’s national integrity assessment, which found that all 14 national integrity pillars were less than adequate.

The report also identified a clear integrity gap between existing laws and agency practices.

The anti-corruption strategies developed by TIPNG in partnership with selected agencies will help bridge this gap.
