INTERNATIONAL ANNUAL CONFERENCE
FOR INTEGRITY – CAII 2018

PREVENTING
CORRUPTION:

FROM A REACTIVE STATE
TO A PROACTIVE STATE

Presentation
Fighting corruption is a duty that demands the engagement of institutions and citizens, as the development of our countries is at stake, consequently, our welfare.
All over the world, unfortunately, there is significant spreading of such endemic affliction: The Corruption Perception Index (2017) by Transparency International revealed that two-thirds of countries worldwide perceived high levels of corruption in their countries.
Regarding Peru, the Index shows that our country, together with Brazil, Panama and Colombia rank in the 96th place. Uruguay, on the other hand, obtained a better performance, with a score of 70, just below Canada (82) and United States (75).
A survey published last October, by the Newspaper Gestion, showed that only 9% of Peruvians feel their public institutions are at the service of citizens.
Before this situation, our duty, as public servers, is to act in a proactive and organized manner – hand in hand with citizenry- to enhance relevant and in-depth structural changes, allowing fighting against corruption, with a focus on prevention.
In the Office of the Comptroller General of the Republic of Peru, we are commitment and have implemented, among other reforms, the new model of concurrent control, a type of simultaneous control. This model characterizes for gathering a multidisciplinary team of professionals to join public managers. They timely alert auditors on the facts that could jeopardize the execution and implementation of planned works and services, in order to guarantee the appropriate use of public resources. Thus, social control is promoted through initiatives such as Citizens Monitors of Control.
Concurrent control, along with other topics, will be analyzed during the International Annual Conference for Integrity (CAII 2018): “Preventing corruption: From a reactive State to a proactive State”, held on December 6-7 in Lima, Peru. The conference will bring together more than a thousand people, where close to 30 national and international speakers will exchange knowledge and analyze good practices and strategies to prevent and dissuade both, acts of corruption and functional misconduct.
An opportunity to find ways to implement control systems and prevention of corruption, capable to promote improvements in public management and create public value in benefit of citizens.
The CAII will also promote integration of interinstitutional commitments towards the strengthening of preventing corruption, by encouraging debate on innovative and efficient mechanisms.
We kindly invite you to participate in the promising debate of the CAII 2018 and be the agents of change our country requires, towards the Bicentennial of Peru’s independence.

Looking forward to welcome you!
