Description

Which public issue will be addressed by this obligation?
Getting acquainted with risk situations that can contribute to undermining institutional integrity and suggesting how to avoid said situations in the future. In April 2018, the Agency prepared and published the draft Guidelines for drafting and implementation of integrity plans in BiH institutions, thus initiating the second cycle of drafting integrity plans. In order to facilitate the institutions accessing the creation of the document and at the same time modernize the self-assessment process that is being done in this way, access to the creation of a web application for online drafting of integrity plans will make this process quicker and easier. People who will be in charge of drafting integrity plans will undergo the necessary training by employees of the Agency.

What is the obligation?
Web platform created and installed in BiH institutions, coordinators trained to use platforms. The second cycle of drafting integrity plans in BiH institutions has been successfully completed.

How will the fulfilment of the obligation contribute to the solving of the public problem?
In a single document (electronic format document), the institution will have a complete list of risks threatening to undermine the integrity of the institution and propose measures to minimize defined risks. Realizing the proposed measures to improve integrity in practice strengthens the confidence of citizens and the general public in the work of public institutions.
Given that the integrity plan is a preventive anti-corruption mechanism whose purpose is not to solve individual cases of corruption but establishing mechanisms that will influence the reduction of the risk of corruption and other irregularities in all areas of functioning of the institution, by electronic drafting and by the publication of this document of public institutions will affect solving the problem of corruption in society.

Why is this obligation relevant to OGP values?
When making a document, objective self-assessment is important, ie relevant and realistic identification and risk analysis, assessment of their intensity and suggesting adequate measures to reduce the risk. Objective self-assessment does not imply recognition of the existence of corruption or other irregularities in the institution but of the perception and identification of opportunities and disadvantages that may lead to corruption and other irregularities in the work of the institution. Given that the document should be public, thus are fulfilled obligations such as: disclosing information and improving the availability of information to the public or providing the right to information, creation or improvement of rules, regulations and mechanisms in order to make civil servants responsible to the public for their actions.

Additional information
• The obligation to develop integrity plans stems from the Anti-Corruption Strategy 2015-2019 and the accompanying Action Plan.
