This series includes international studies and country-specific reviews of government efforts to make the public sector more efficient, effective, innovative and responsive to citizens’ needs and expectations. Publications in this series look at topics such as open government, preventing corruption and promoting integrity in the public service, risk management, illicit trade, audit institutions, and civil service reform. Country-specific reviews assess a public administration’s ability to achieve government objectives and preparedness to address current and future challenges. In analysing how a country's public administration works, reviews focus on cross-departmental co-operation, the relationships between levels of government and with citizens and businesses, innovation and quality of public services, and the impact of information technology on the work of government and its interaction with businesses and citizens.

This report assesses the integrity framework of the public sector in Tunisia to shed light on the measures that should be put in place. This assessment is based on the 1998 OECD Recommendation on Improving Ethical Conduct in the Public Service and the 2008 OECD Recommendation on Enhancing Integrity in Public Procurement. This report also includes Middle Eastern and North African countries case studies on the implementation of policies promoting integrity. The proposals for action stemming from this first assessment provide a roadmap for the Tunisian authorities in order to reinforce the integrity framework of the public sector. They include, among others, carrying out detailed diagnoses of the weaknesses in the system to identify priority measures for reform. In addition, the authorities are advised to identify the priority measures according to the diagnoses developed in cooperation with the stakeholders. Particular emphasis has been given to Public Procurement since this area is especially vulnerable to corruption.
