Public sector integrity is crucial for sustained socioeconomic development. This report assesses Peru's integrity system at both the central and subnational levels of government. It provides a set of recommendations to strengthen and consolidate this system, instil a culture of integrity, and ensure accountability through control and enforcement. Beyond reviewing the institutional arrangement of the system, the report analyses the policies and practices related to political finance, the promotion of public ethics and the management of conflict of interests, lobbying, whistleblower protection, internal control and risk management, as well as the disciplinary regime and the role of the criminal justice system in containing corruption.

Ensuring a sound internal control and risk-management framework in Peru

This chapter focuses on the role of internal control systems and the key functions of risk management and internal audit in strengthening integrity, transparency and enhancing good and accountable governance. The first part assesses the existing internal control and risk management processes, standards and institutional arrangements in comparison with leading international models and practices. The second part highlights the need to further clarify the roles and allocate responsibilities between the different internal control and audit actors across government and at the entity-wide level focusing on the consulting and assurance attributes of an independent internal audit function. Lastly, the third part emphasises how a sound internal control system can support effective integrity policies and actively contribute to preventing, detecting and responding to fraud and corruption schemes. The analysis supports recommendations that favour an optimal internal control and risk management environment working as a cornerstone and valuable ally to the Peruvian government s commitment to an ambitious and promising integrity and anti-corruption agenda.
