Self-Assessment Tool for Parliamentarians to Monitoring their Performance in Support of UNCAC Implementation

 
The tool will suggest indicators linked to specific UNCAC articles. More specifically, it will be linked to the self-assessment questions listed under a draft ‘checklist’ [linked to attached file] developed by the GOPAC Global Task Force on the UNCAC to help parliamentarians evaluate their contribution to fighting corruption.
This tool, developed jointly with the Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption (GOPAC), will provide suggested indicators for parliamentarians to benchmark their performance in supporting the implementation of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC). Assessment results will also be useful for parliamentarians to perform oversight functions more effectively, by highlighting areas where UNCAC provisions have yet to be implemented by their government.
 
This tool is filling an important gap in the corruption assessment landscape. Although there are many indicator sources on governance and corruption, very few are specifically focused on the actions of parliamentarians towards corruption prevention.
 
The assessment will provide an opportunity for parliamentarians to partner with national ‘data collectors’ with whom they normally don’t interact much with (such as the National Statistical Office, the National Anti-Corruption Agency, the Supreme Audit Office, the Ombudsman Office, etc.). It will also provide a platform for national consultations to help the government, parliamentarians and other national actors prioritize anti-corruption reform efforts.
