Combating Municipal and Procurement Corruption in South Africa

The overall project goal is to use strategic levers of ethical change to combat municipal and procurement corruption in South Africa. Specifically, the goals are to:

  • Reduce political pressure for corruption in South African municipalities through the development and adoption of a Code for Ethical Governance.
  • Mainstream a structured anti-corruption training and accreditation system for suppliers, in the form of the Ethically Aware Supplier Induction (EASI) programme, leading to fewer ethical transgressions, and higher levels of reporting of misconduct by suppliers.
  • Build capacity in the Gauteng Provincial Government (GPG) to support municipalities in sustainably institutionalising their ethics management programmes and improving their ethical culture.
