One of key areas of the Democratic Governance Section (DGS), fight against corruption, encompasses providing assistance to all levels of authorities in development of measures, which seek to prevent corruption and enhance transparency. In line with its mandate and relevant OSCE commitments, DGS has contributed to the fight against corruption by supporting the development, adoption, and promotion of anti-corruption regulations, and by improving co-ordination between governmental bodies in implementing these regulations. To tackle corruption at the local level, in July 2018 the Mission piloted a project in 20 Local Self-Governance Units (LGUs), focusing on identifying spaces for corruption in their provision of support to CSOs. As a result, the report was developed in summer 2019 and it included the findings of the project and practical recommendations on how to close the gaps. Key recommendations include a need for comprehensive changes in how LGUs support CSOs, including improved record-keeping, more transparent funding procedures, and clear guidelines on monitoring and evaluation of allocated funds. In July 2019, DGS presented the report findings to municipal representatives involved in the initiative. Besides findings, DGS presented possible outlook of web application which reflects on recommendations and offered it to LGUs.
IT experts will develop web application; develop interfaces for different required pages, develop corresponding user accounts and interfaces for the website administrators and secured access to the website and user management. Once completed, the Mission will purchase internet space, Swildcard SSl, domain, static IP address while IT experts will configure and install a web application. Following completion of this task, nine LGUs will test the application while necessary changes will be introduced at the beginning of 2020.
The IT experts will report to the HDD Director, through NPO Governance Development (NPO GD).
