Transparency International (TI) is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. Through more than 100 chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin, Germany, TI raises awareness of the damaging effects of corruption and works with partners in government, business and civil society to develop and implement effective measures to tackle it.
The TI has secured a four-year partnership with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) to continue supporting our anti-corruption work in the region under the program, TI Indo-Pacific Partnership for Strong, Transparent, Responsive & Open Networks for Good Governance (TI IPP STRONGG) from 2020-2023.
The key goal of the programme is to contribute to reduced corruption and increased transparency in the region, by empowering a strong and independent civil society voice and network to mobilise action in support of increased accountability of public and private institutions.
Transparency International Australia (TIA) is contributing to the STRONGG program with a project called Accountable Infrastructure.
Transparency International Australia (TIA) has identified several issues associated with corruption and infrastructure in the region, including:
The infrastructure sector is too often characterised by undue influence, lobbying by special interest groups which leave it vulnerable to corruption.
TIA is seeking a consultant to design and deliver an Infrastructure Corruption Risk Assessment Tool (ICRAT).
The overall objectives of the ICRAT are to identify and assess corruption risks in the infrastructure planning and design phase to help minimise the risks of corruption and ensure infrastructure projects make a positive contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
