Building Institutions to Fight Corruption


TARGET GROUP | The course targets a diverse pool of professionals from Ministries of Finance, Central Banks and other key public agencies including the Leader/President/Prime Minister’s Office, the Supreme Audit Institution, the Anti-Corruption Commission, and the Accountant General's Office. These agencies are critical in shaping and implementing a country’s anti corruption strategy and policies. Applicants are expected to be mid-to senior level qualified professionals with several years of experience of policy making and/or working on addressing vulnerabilities to corruption in the fiscal area.


DESCRIPTION | The training—to be presented by IMF staff and led by the Fiscal Affairs Department—will set out a detailed road map to identify and address vulnerabilities to corruption in the public financial management cycle. It will cover systems and institutions for both revenue and expenditure management. It will also present indicators and red flags that can alert policy makers and oversight agencies of possible challenges and weaknesses, and the potential macro-fiscal implications and costs of corruption. The course will include examples and case studies from the region. This course aims at helping country authorities build their institutions and skills to fight corruption.


OBJECTIVES | Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

• Identify the legal instruments, mechanisms, and strategies that need to be in place to both prevent and prosecute corruption.

• Better understand the need for a strong rule of law and how it relates to corruption.

• Understand mechanisms for international cooperation designed to fight corruption.
