The Public Sector Framework

image of OECD Integrity Review of Tunisia

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.

Foreword and Acknowledgements

Since the revolution of 14 January 2011, the Tunisian people have embarked upon a new path towards more inclusive and fairer political, economic and social development, based on the rule of law, good governance, and transparency. The adoption of a roadmap of political reforms led to the election of a Constitutional Assembly in October of 2011, in charge of drafting a new constitution. The new government formed out of these elections has made the fight against corruption a national priority. A permanent governmental agency aimed at fighting corruption was established, and a minister in charge of governance and the fight against corruption was appointed to serve under the head of government in coordinating anti-corruption policies within the public sector.
