68 working days over a period of 6 months
Building on the Kuala Lumpur Statement on Anti-Corruption Strategies, which outlines a set of core principles to guide national governments in the development, design and implementation of sustainable strategies and adopted in December 2013, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) seeks the services of a senior consultant to assist in the production of a publication aimed at supporting governments in the development and implementation of effective national anti-corruption strategies. The publication will be a practical tool for use by government officials and non-governmental actors, providing a methodological framework that promotes the engagement of a broad range of stakeholders in the strategy development and implementation process.
The purpose of this consultancy is twofold. Firstly, to conduct complex research on existing national anti-corruption strategies relevant to the implementation of Article 5 of the Convention. Secondly, on the basis of that research, develop a concise and practical guide to support the development and implementation of effective and sustainable national anti-corruption strategies.
The publication will support the development and implementation of effective and sustainable national anti-corruption strategies by:
- Outlining the key stages in the development of a national anti-corruption strategy and providing a methodological framework to be followed by national authorities;
- Explaining the role that different stakeholders can play in the development and implementation of national strategies including: anti-corruption agencies, law enforcement bodies, civil society, the private sector, and international and regional partners;
- Setting forth models of implementation modalities to ensure that responsible stakeholders are accountable for achievement of identified activities;
- Emphasizing the importance of robust monitoring, evaluation and reporting mechanisms to ensure transparency in the implementation process and demonstrate progress in addressing corruption challenges;
- Highlighting national good practices and success stories at all stages of the process, including development, implementation, monitoring and reporting.
