Assistance for Afghanistan’s Anticorruption Authority (4A)
DATES: October 2010 - September 2013
PARTNERS: Management Systems International, Inc. (MSI)
Assistance for Afghanistan’s Anticorruption Authority (4A) is a three-year, $9.4 million project that will support the High Office of Oversight (HOO). The project was designed in close collaboration with government counterparts and other donors active in the area of anticorruption. The project aims to promote a more capable, accountable, and effective government in Afghanistan, while also building an Afghan civil society that can be a more effective partner in helping combat corruption. 4A will help develop an HOO that is financially and institutionally sustainable, models best practices of transparency and accountability to Afghan citizens, and is capable of planning for and managing donor resources, including staffing and funding requirements. Training will focus on HOO’s administrative functions, including ability to pass independent audits and to manage budgets. Anticipated results of the project include: increased avenues for reporting corruption; increased responsiveness to complaints at the national and sub-national levels; and, higher reported satisfaction with the government’s corruption redress mechanisms.
