OECD Integrity Review of Colombia

Investing in Integrity for Peace and Prosperity

Integrity is crucial in order to ensure sustainable peace in Colombia. This report provides a focused analysis of Colombia’s integrity system, addressing existing gaps and elaborating policy recommendations on how to build a coherent public integrity system. The review pays special attention to improving co-ordination at the national level and with the regions, cultivating a culture of integrity in the public administration, and enabling effective accountability through internal control and risk management. It emphasises the priority of mainstreaming integrity policies in the processes and sectors related to the implementation of the Peace Agreement to prevent corruption and to contribute to the inclusive and sustainable development of the country.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter highlights the added value of a robust, contemporary internal control system in mitigating the challenges of allocating scarce resources and delivering impact for Colombian citizens. Risk management is the driving force behind governments’ efforts to deal with uncertainties and threats, including fraud and corruption risks, which hamper the achievement of the strategic objectives of public organisations. The internal audit’s role is to provide reasonable assurance that management systems and defence arrangements are properly set to address low performance, wrongdoing, fraud and corruption.
