Can you share some best practices on systems for monitoring the implementation of public institutions’ integrity plans, including possible indicators that help to measure results?
Monitoring integrity requires a conceptual framework that defines integrity as well as set clear objectives, targets and SMART performance indicators by which progress can be measured. The OECD has developed a comprehensive integrity assessment framework, which aims at: (1) collecting valid and reliable data on the existence and functioning of the key instruments, processes and actors in place for defining integrity, guiding integrity, and monitoring and enforcing compliance and; (2) comparing them with benchmarks compiled across comparable government institutions.
