This report looks at how to curb corruption and build a more competitive economy in the Republic of Kazakhstan by assessing four crucial factors: governance, prevention, detection, and prosecution and recovery. In its analysis, it draws on good international practices as well as OECD instruments and tools in 15 policy areas: regulatory governance, competition policy, public financial management, development co-operation, public sector integrity, public procurement, tax administration and transparency, export credits, lobbying, whistleblower protection, business sector integrity, criminalising bribery, civil society, and media. The report provides recommendations for improving Kazakhstan’s laws and policies as well as effectively implementing them in each of these areas.



Strengthening public sector integrity in Kazakhstan

This chapter assesses the core elements of the public sector integrity system in the Republic of Kazakhstan, where a series of new laws and codes to combat corruption were passed in response to the objectives set out in the Anti-Corruption Strategy and the 100 Concrete Steps Plan. In light of these reforms, this chapter identifies challenges and opportunities to enhance public sector integrity through an analysis of the legislative and policy framework for public sector integrity, institutional arrangements, policies for Ethics and Codes of Conduct, and the management of conflict of interest, internal control and audit, as well as the disciplinary regime for integrity violations.
