Developing Systems to Combat Corruption

BRISBANE, Australia - Sept. 4, 2018 - PRLog -- In a further article published recently by the International Monetary Fund David Fellows,Co-principal of PFMConnect,suggests that sound administration must be established as the cornerstone of anti-corruption efforts. He expresses concern about the lack of focus on the need to champion good management. In doing this he refers to ways in which administrative data is routinely used to combat corruption but suggests that too often there is a lack of expectation by senior government officials that good managers can make a tangible impact on corruption. He also suggests that systems development opportunities should be  used to introduce routines that help to combat corruption. .

Apart from this he suggests that existing expertise could be used more effectively if, for example:

1. Countries could prepare anti-corruption strategies that include the use and development of administrative data;

2. Collaboration between states, perhaps on a regional basis, could be used to develop techniques for interrogating data, preparing anti-corruption strategies, sharing knowledge of corrupt practices, and building operational cooperation between countries; and

3. Consideration should be given by multilateral agencies and regional representative bodies to the development of an international systems assessment schema that would indicate the efficacy and shortcomings of individual administrative systems for the purposes of combatting corruption.
