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.

Promoting a comprehensive and co-ordinated integrity system in Peru

This chapter examines the institutional arrangements for integrity established in Peru at both the central and regional levels. First, it analyses the High-level Commission against Corruption (Comisión de Alto Nivel Anticorrupción, or CAN), the body officially mandated to guide the public integrity system. The analysis focuses on the Commission s capacity to fulfil its mandate, its independence from political interference, the availability of specialised and trained staff, and the adequacy of the resources and powers at its disposal. Second, this chapter looks more specifically at the core mandate of the CAN, which is to promote horizontal co-ordination between the different institutions of the public integrity system. Lastly, the chapter assesses the regional outreach and vertical co-ordination mechanisms of integrity policies that are in place, with a special focus on institutional capacities at the regional level.
