At the Institutional level, the objectives include, among others, to provide a mechanism for the coordination of anti-Corruption programmes in Government Ministries, Departments, Agencies (MDA) and the Private Sector. In this regard the Public Private Partners Policy launched by GRZ recently will have reference. Another objective at Institutional level is to enhance transparency and accountability in the exercise of Public authority, and streamline cumbersome bureaucratic and complex procedures in public service delivery.
This will be achieved by institutionalization of corruption prevention through formation of Integrity Committees (ICs) in MDAs, and these have already been established in 20 institutions including the Ministry of Lands, the Immigration Department and Zambia Police Service. Among the Local Authorities, ICs have been established in the Lusaka, Livingstone, Ndola and Kitwe City as well as the Kalulushi and Luanshya Municipal Councils. Private Institutions have also requested the ACC to help them set up ICs and Konkola Copper Mines has established ICs at each of it’s four (4) Integrated Business Units. The benefits of the ICs have began bearing fruit as witnessed in the establishment of service charters and customer service centre where the IC initiative have been put in place.
Strengthening human, financial and material resource capacity in anti-corruption institution, building capacity and motivating public service workers are other objectives at institutional level.
The legal framework has elevated corruption prevention by giving the Commission powers to instruct a public body on practices and procedures that are necessary to prevent, reduce or eliminate corruption. Further, the law has provided for the establishment of IC in all public institutions.
