Quick facts for this project:
|Country of implementation:||South Africa|
|Duration (in years):||5 years|
|Funding volume in US-Dollar (million):||0.80 M|
|Registered in:||South Africa|
The project aims to address corruption in the Gauteng Province of South Africa in three ways:
Firstly, The Ethics Institute (TEI) will provide ongoing thought leadership to the Gauteng Anti-Corruption Forum – a newly launched Collective Action anti-corruption initiative involving government, business, civil society and labor. Its purpose is to explore synergies to consolidate anti-corruption efforts across the various sectors, focusing on specific risk areas.
Secondly, The Ethics Institute (TEI) will collaborate with seven municipalities in the province to strengthen their ethics and anti-corruption management capacity. This will include setting up necessary governance structures and assisting the municipalities during the first few years of implementation of their ethics management programs. Various projects will be undertaken, from the development of leadership involvement to the setting up of an ethics-based policy environment and the institutionalizing of ethics programs. A key outcome is the development of a technically competent and dedicated cadre of Ethics Officers to drive these programs forward.
Lastly, The Ethics Institute (TEI) will create information and training resources for encouraging fair and competitive behavior, especially in the construction industry. Following the implementation of the project in the Gauteng Province, the results will be distributed and will reach the rest of the country.
