Implementation of an integrity plan is an important step for assisting municipalities, UNDP country offices, international donors and organizations in carrying out anti-corruption projects at the local level.
In order to successfully implement an integrity plan, it is necessary to develop a straightforward integrity policy statement between the actors involved and commit to a Code of Ethics. Negotiations and a signature of a Memorandum of Understanding with Mayors are crucial for clarifying objectives, roles and responsibilities for the entire project.
Thus, the formation of a Guiding Coalition allows Mayors and Anti-Corruption Practitioners to actively diagnose corruption practices and highlight vulnerable areas through a participatory process.
Once a thorough corruption risk assessment has been conducted, it is necessary to develop an integrity plan in order to define integrity risk treatments, disciplinary measures and elaborate strategic actions to address corruption.
Furthermore, a continuous monitoring, reviewing and integration process ensures a reliable check on the planned achievements and objectives.
