Monitoring public institutions’ integrity plans
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.
