EEA and Norway Grants: Report on corruption risks

Together with Transparency International (TI), we have developed a tool to assess potential risks of corruption within the EEA and Norway Grants. TI has now published the 2015 Synthesis Report summarising the results of using the tool during two years’ close collaboration between donor and beneficiary countries.

The tool measures potential exposure to corruption risk (‘high’, ‘medium’ or ‘low’), in each country and in all of our programmes and how the risks can be mitigated.

This pilot exercise is one of the first of its kind to be applied to public sector Grants management. It is part of our wider risk management strategy and good governance approach based on a ‘zero tolerance towards corruption’ policy.

The Report synthesis provides the overview of key findings, conclusions and recommendations for mitigating actions. The report Annexes include the methodology used, the summary of results for each beneficiary country and the responses received from National Focal Points – responsible for the overall management and control of the programmes in each country.
