USAID Government Accountability Initiative

BACKGROUND

The Serbia Government Accountability Initiative (GAI) is a four-year, $8.5 million activity that works with key Serbian stakeholders to increase government accountability at the national and local levels.

ACTIVITIES

The project is structured around three components: Local Government Accountability, Independent Oversight Institutions, and Adjudication of Corruption Cases:

  • GAI supports efforts to increase public participation in local government decision making and oversight, incentivizing local governments to operate in a more transparent and responsive manner.
  • The activity provides technical assistance to independent oversight institutions such as the State Audit Institution (SAI) and Anti-corruption Agency (ACA) to strengthen monitoring of government performance and public officials.
  • GAI works with specialized anti-corruption court units to support the adjudication of corruption cases and it is helping to establish a system for the collection of statistics on corruption cases.
