Project Summary: 

The Support to Anti-Corruption Champion Institutions (SACCI) Program in Ukraine is a five-year USAID initiative with the objective to assist Ukraine to reduce corruption and increase the accountability and transparency of governance. The program seeks to empower key government institutions to fight corruption, build public support for and engagement in anticorruption effort, and reduce citizen tolerance to corruption.

**Please note: Only citizens of Ukraine are eligible for this position**

Position Summary: 

The SACCI project provides support to several national and local level governmental institutions including the Secretariat of the Cabinet of Ministers, the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine, Ministry of Health, the Sumy Oblast State Administration, Drohobych City Administration and others. SACCI assists these institutions with identifying corruption risks in their operations, developing and implementing corruption prevention measures, and strengthening compliance with anti-corruption policies and standards.

Working with the Drohobych City Administration (DCA) in 2018, SACCI applied its Institutional Integrity Framework Assessment (IIFA) methodology to the DCA. The assessment showed deficiencies in several dimensions and the need for establishing an authorized unit of corruption prevention (AU). SACCI and DCA agreed to implement a set of regulatory changes in pursuit of establishing an AU and preventing corruption in 2019. These changes relate to development of and internal audit unit statutes, DCA procedures for corruption risk assessment, anti-corruption screening (expertise), bonuses awarding, conflict of interest mitigation, gifts handling, inspections, whistleblower reporting and code of ethics.

To better cater to the needs of DCA, SACCI is seeking an expert who will assist with development of the above-mentioned procedures, statutes and contribute other corruption prevention related activities. In addition, the consultant will collaborate with SACCI on assessing the opportunity for implementing inspector general functions within AU on the ministerial level.

In parallel, at the national level, SACCI continues its work with the Ministry of Infrastructure (MIU). In 2018, SACCI focused on identifying corruption risks in internal controls and audit, human resource management, and management of state-owned enterprises and companies by the Ministry. Proposed by SACCI activities to mitigate corruption risks were incorporated into the MIU Anti-Corruption Program as well as the MIU-SACCI Action Plan. Also, as part of the Action Plan, SACCI committed to assist the Ministry in identifying best-fit international practices for setting up and operations of inspector general offices in executive branch government entities. Amongst other things, SACCI suggested that the Ministry consider ways to “legalize” this new practice in line with current Ukraine’s regulations.
