Sierra Leone_NACS Implmentation Plan 2019-2023

Over the years, acknowledgment of the prevalence of corruption and its corrosive effects on Sierra Leone
society has produced a wide array of National Anti-Corruption Implementation Action Plan and measures
aimed to institutionalize the fight against corruption. Since the inception of the Anti-Corruption
Commission in the year 2000, the Country has rolled-out three National Anti-Corruption Implementation
Action Plans – The first National Anti-Corruption Implementation Action Plan (2005) adopted two
approaches- Prevention and Enforcement. The second National Anti-Corruption Implementation Action
Plan (2008- 2013) took an incremental approach by building on the first strategy and broadened the
prevention concept and incorporated the National Integrity System, focusing on constructive engagement;
aimed at separately emphasizing institutional-strengthening measures across the public sector. The third
National Anti-Corruption Implementation Action Plans (2014-2018) focused on both political (reflecting
priorities in the country) and technical (based on various studies, public consultations, surveys and
benchmarking other countries’ Anti-corruption strategies).

1. 0 NATIONAL ANTI - CORRUPTION STRATEGY IMPLEMENTATION ACTION PLAN 2019 to 2023

11. 10 Implementation Action Plan The overall measures above outline the general systemic actions aimed to achieve the four strategic objectives of the NACS. From the overall measures, specific actions designed to meet the strategic objectives are provided in the following National Anti - Corruption Implementation Matrix. The actions in the NACS Implementation Action Plan Matrix contain actions that various implementing institutions have undertaken to implement within the next five years. The Implementation Plan outlines activities, benchmarks and lead implementing institut ion and collaborating institution and budget and timeline. The Total cost for the implementation of the NACS estimated per objective. The budget provided below is an indicative budget for each of the objectives. Individual institutions will work on the det ailed budget with help from the NACS secretariat. Most of the activities in the implementation plan don't need another budget outside the annual budget submitted to the Ministry of Finance. No Strateg ic Objective Estimated Cost (Le) 1 To develop, promote, and implement corruption prevention measures and public awareness campaigns. 2 To d evelop sustainable Partnership and mechanism for join t action and strengthening institutional capacity 3 To Strengthen Integrity, transparency, accountability and the rule of law 4 To Creat e sustainable deterrence against corruption by strict and prompt enforcement of anti - corruption laws and regulations Table 2 Estimated Cost Per Objective

6. 5 End line evaluation of Imp lementation Plan This will be done at the end of 202 2 to assess the impact generated by activities implemented by MDAs and Councils. This assessment will compare the Corruption situation in the targeted institution before and after the implementation. It w ill also evaluate the coordination and management processes and procedures of structures in the implementation of the National Anti - corruption Implementation Action Plan.

9. 8 by putting in place standards to uphold the highest code of conduct that will enhance impartiality in the adjudication of corruption cases. By independent ly and impartially dispensing justice, the Judiciary will make the NACS a living part of Sierra Leone’s fight against corruption and strengthen the hand of all actors in exercising their responsibilities detailed in the action plan. Ministries, Department s, and Agencies (MDAs) and Councils : Heads of MDAs and councils must ensure that actions agreed are implemented within the time frame, and incorporate actions allocated to them into their routine work to enable effective and efficient implementation. The A nti - Corruption Commission (ACC): As one off the leading integrity institutions in the nation that has responsibility to uphold good governance and fight corruption, the ACC must continue to execute its mandate effectively without fear or favor, and improve its coordination, public education, information sharing and collaboration with CSOs and other integrity institutions. The Media is key to the effective representation of the NACS in all forms of discourse in the national fight against corruption. By focusing on NACS activities and critical messages, and serving as a watchdog on implementation of actions, continually investigating and reporting corruption across the nation including naming and shaming institutions and individuals caught in acts of corruption, the Media will become a crucial tool to give meaning to the plans outlined in the fight. To do this effectively, the Media must maintain impartiality in investigating and reporting corruption. Civil Society Organizations (CSOs): CSOs should continue to give a loud voice to the people and concerns of civil society as a crucial watchdog in the implementation of the plan. They are expected to support th e NACS secretariat in monitoring the implementation plan and collaborate with the ACC to empower the citizenry through education, awareness, and sensitization to corruption in all its forms and practices. Traditional Authorities : As custodians of the beaut iful traditions and culture of Sierra Leone, they are expected to ensure that the fight against corruption is inculcated in people at the community level. Their leadership at the community level through example and staying neutral in national politics ( to prevent partisanship and related corruption ) will give strong signals to the people and communities in the fight against corruption. Development Partners (DPs): DPs are very critical in the implementation of this plan, and it is the expectation that both l ocal and international partners will keep government priorities in the fight against corruption as outlined in this plan in focus in all proposals developed and implemented in Sierra Leone. There is the need for collaboration and sharing of information, pr ojects, and budgets at the national and district levels to avoid duplication of effort and scarce resources. Political Parties : Political Parties produce most of the public officials should stand tall in the fight against corruption. Parties should ensure that politicians that come from their ranks practice accountability by disclosing their sources of funding. Parties must also ensure that their members that aspire to high offices of the State clearly understand the trust imposed on them in the nation’s g overnance BEFORE becoming public officials.

8. 7 Implementation Mechanism As a result of its complexity, corruption demands a fight that cannot be successfully fought by one institution or individual. The fight against corruption must involve institutions and key stakeholders working together against the menace of corruption. St akeholders and institution must be dr a wn from the Executive, Legislative, and the Judiciary. The media, CSOs, and international/local development partners and all integrity institutions must work together to support the implementation of actions in the imp lementation plan. Role of Stakeholders in the Implementation of the Action Plan Because corruption has become a systemic contagion, and a way of life in Sierra Leone, the fight against it is complicated and needs collective and collaborative efforts and resources to electrify the battle. As a result of the complexity, there is the need for proactive involvement of key stakeholders and institutions at all levels of Sierra Leone society, including but not limited to:  The President of the Republic of Sierra Leone, and the Office of the President itself as a functional area including all appointees that support the office;  Parliament of the Republic of Sierra Leone;  The Judiciary of the Republic of Sierra Leone;  Government Ministries, Departments, and A gencies (MDAs);  The Anti - Corruption Commission of Sierra Leone;  The Media;  The Civil Society as a whole, and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs);  Traditional Authorities (Preferably the Council of Paramount Chiefs as the Umbrella Body);  Political Parties;  I nternational and Local Development Partners;  The citizenry of Sierra Leone. The roles and expectations for these actors in the overall NACS, implementation strategy, and action plan are outlined as follows. The President and the Office of the President : Po litical Will is the key determinant of whether the implementation of the NACS will achieve the targeted results. The realization of the objectives of NACS needs political will, and the Office of the President must make it possible by ensuring that the NACS secretariat and implementing MDAs and local councils have the resources, capacity, and independence to coordinate and implement actions in the NACS fully. The President must ensure that the Judiciary has what it takes to function as a separate and independent arm of the State to enable the enforcement of actions that arise from the implementation of the plan. House of Parliament : Parliament has an essential role in exer cising oversight responsibility and holding MDAs to account through public scrutiny in the implementation of the plan. By holding MDAs individually and the Executive arm of the State generally to the highest standards of transparency and accountability in the use of resources as detailed in the plan, Parliament can manifest the will of the people for a Sierra Leone f ree of the scourge of corruption. The Judiciary : The protection of the rule of law and good governance as targeted in the NACS start with an ef fective Judiciary. The Chief Justice and senior management team of the Judiciary must show leadership

4. 3 Implementation Risks and Assumptions for NACS The principal risks and assumptions of the Implementation Action Plan include:  Delay in the devolution of MDAs to District Councils. The District councils can achieve some of the actions in the plan if the full devolution of MDAs to District councils come s into effect.  Funds nee ded to implement the actions will be mobilised by the central government to ensure the full implementation of measures recommended in this plan. Considering the expenditure and the revenue generate d by the central government, funding of some of the actions will be a challenge.  Consecutive governments uphold political will for the effective and efficient implementation of actions over the five years. Change in government and governance brings along changes in priorities, and this might affect the implementa tion of the activities.  Good governance and the rule of law will continue to reinforce through free, fair, and credible elections in the country. Failure to uphold democratic governance will damp en the implementation of this plan.  Ownership of the Implem entation Action Plan by each Sierra Leonean, head of MDAs, Councils, and all other stakeholders in the Sierra Leone developmental process is critical to the success of this implementation plan. Monitoring and Evaluation Plan Monitoring and Evaluation remain critical in measuring expected outputs and outcomes of actions and objectives in this National Anti - C orruption Implementation Action Plan. The Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) The plan will form the basis for a systematic assessment of the progress of achievement of actions and objectives stated in this implementation plan. The M&E plan will provide an overview of how the responsibilities of agencies and councils exercise towards the implementation of activities in the National Anti - corrupt ion Implementation Action Plan. The development of M&E tools for data collection will be undertaken by the NACS secretariat with support from the M&CU of the Anti - Corruption Commission as the need arise s . During the implementation of the actions, the NACS secretariat with the backing from the M&CU of the Anti - Corruption Commission will continuously track progress made and routinely supervise the collection of qualitative and quantitative data to verify progress towards achieving the set targets. Analys is of data is carryout at various levels. Data will be analy z ed and presented in the form of tables, charts, and graphs during review meetings with MDAs and councils. Routine data disaggregation is by MDA, District , and region and when required by gender . Data Quality Check - NACS secretariat with support from the M&CU of the Anti - Corruption Commission will conduct regular data quality review. Data quality review will be done to ensure quality, accuracy, reliability, timeliness, and objectivity of data received.

7. 6 National Steering Committee will be responsible for supervising the general implementation of the NACS. The committee will be chaired by the P resident of the Republic of Sierra Leone with support from members of the NACS who comprise professionals, public servants, CSOs , media, and religious bod ies . The National Steering Committee will be responsible for providing supportive supervision to the NACS secretariat for coordinating i mplementing institutions per objective. Base d on progress per objectives, the National Steering Committees will develop and share a six - monthly progress report with the President . The committee in its report will proffer recommendations for the effective and efficient implementation of the plan base d on the monitoring feedback. National Anti - Corruption Strategy Secretariat will serve as the implementation coordinating unit. It will be responsible for coordinating implementing institutions for the implementation of actions allocated to them. The NACS s ecretariat will also perform the following key activities;  Support implementing institution s to develop a detail ed implementation plan for actions allocated them  Conduct quarterly monitoring of actions assigned to implementing institutions  Organize and facilitate quarterly actions review meetings with implementing institutions  Provide progress report to the President as per objectives  Develop an annual monitoring plan and terms of reference (ToR) for the monitoring of the NACS  Provide supportive supervis ion to the implementing institutions.  Conduct training for IMCs on action monitoring per implementing institution Implementing Institutions are institutions charged with the responsibilities to execute actions allocated to them in the implementation matrix . All implementing institutions must set up or revive an Integrity, Management Committee with support from NACS secretariat. The IMCs members will be the focal people for the implementation of the NACS actions. IMCs will receive formal training on their ro les and responsibilities from NACS secretariat. Integrity Management Committee (IMCs) shall be compose d of the critical management staff of implementing institutions;  Deputy heads of Institutions  Head of Internal Audits  Heads of Monitoring and Evaluation (if available)  Heads of procurement  Heads of Finances  Heads of Operations  Heads of Human Resources

3. 2 Introduction Over the years, acknowledgment of the prevalence of corruption and its corrosive effects on Sierra Leone society has produced a wide array of National Anti - C orruption Implementation Action Plan and measures aimed to institutionali z e the fight against corruption. Since the inception of the Anti - Corruption Commission in the year 2000, the Country has rolled - out three National Anti - C orruption Implementation Action Plans – The first National Anti - C orruption Implementation Action Plan (2005) adopte d two approaches - Prevention and Enforcement. The second National Anti - C orruption Implementation Action Plan (2008 - 2013) took an incremental approach by building on the first strategy and broadened the prevention concept and incorporated the National Inte grity System, focusing on constructive engagement; aimed at separat ely emphasizing institutional - strengthening measures across the public sector. The third National Anti - Corruption Implementation Action Plans (2014 - 2018) focused on both political (reflecti ng priorities in the country) and technical (based on various studies, public consultations, surveys and benchmarking other countries’ Anti - corruption strategies). In line with the structure, priorities, and objectives of the National Anti - Corruption Strat egy 2019 - 2023, the fourth - generation National Anti - C orruption Implementation Action Plan is designed to explain the processes and procedures for the implementation of action s agreed upon by stakeholders during national stakeholders’ consultation. These act ions consist of specific benchmarks and corruption control measures with responsible MDAs , Councils, Religious bodies, and private sectors for implementation. NACS Formulation Methodology The design of the NACS profited from the consultative and interactive approaches. To solicit the support of pertinent stakeholders in the development of the NACS and its implementation action plan, full confidence building, and ownership fostering measures were undertaken. These included consultation with government functionaries, MDAs, local councils, and other public institutions, private sectors, CSOs, and the general public. However, to enhance the participation of all targeted participants, three main methods of the consultation were used; K ey I nformant I nterview (KII) , F ocused G roup D iscussions (FGD) , and District town hall meetings. KII technique and FGDs conducted with well - informed stakeholders of the Executive, Legislation, Judiciary , and the Priv ate Sector . The KII enable d stakeholders to make inputs in the development of the NACS and exercise ownership of the strategy. The town hall meetings were attended by staff of government offices, anti - corruption commission staff, civil society, private sector, media houses, other key accountability institutions, experts and development partners at the District level. These meeting s were conducted to enable and ensure the participation of citizens from all the Districts in the development of NACS. The study developed questions on key focus areas and institutions to ensure that the study investigation remains focused on obtaining da ta usable for actionable recommendations relevant to the prevention, education, and investigation, and enforcement of corruption across Sierra Leone but most importantly to help or guide the development of the new NACS strategy 2019 - 2023. The study based o n both quantitative and qualitative information and data. The research instruments were qualitative and quantitative using the approach of stratified random sampling.

5. 4 Progress report on actions of all MDAs and Councils will be reviewed by NACS secretariat to ascertain the coherenc e of the story with actions allocated to them. Reports submitted by MDAs and councils will be assessed bas ed on;  Achievements/p rogress relative to planned targets,  Timeliness of executing actions  The added value during the implementation of the actions allocated to MDAs.

The monitoring team will generate a monitoring report every quarter on development made and share the report with relevant stakeholders that include s MDAs monitored. Quarterly Review of Actions Implemented by MDAs and Councils The quarterly review meetings will bring all MDAs together to review activities that NACS implement. This review meeting will be organised by the NACS secretariat with the support of the National St ee ring Committee. This meeting will help to identify challenges, opportunities , and understanding of implementation approaches. Annual Assessment of Implementation Plan The review meeting will be conducted at the sta r t of every year. The findings from the annual assessment will be used to inform stakeholders of progress made for the year under review. The assessment team will assess indicators, targets, and timeliness of actions implemented. The team will also evaluate MDAs and Councils performance and management capacities to perform actions in general .

10. 9 Outline of the Overall Measures to Combat Corruption The implementation action plan provides details of how measures suggested being done by various stakeholders in the extensive consultations will be organized for the NACS 2019 - 2023. The following outlines the key measures of the areas for action emphasized by stakeholders and institutions .  Judicial independence, including direct funding outside the control of the Executive , is essential in the fight against corruption.  Implementing Electoral Reforms to improve transparency and minimize opportunities for corrupting the processes and systems of free expression at the party level and national level .  Public sector management reform, including a more realistic and rationalized compensation system .  Ensuring the integrity of public appointments and public sector recruitment into high level and sensitive positions .  Making appointments of heads of integrity institutions independent of the President of the Republic and subjecting such appointments to public hearing and approval by Parliament .  Strengthen the oversight, control, and management of Donor funds and its use .  Increase Parliamentary oversight over the use of public resources by MDAs by, for example, instituting mechanisms for a public hearing by Parliamentary Committee on audited accou nts of MDAs that are broadcast live .  The digitization of access to public services and processes for service delivery to reduce human interface and related opportunities for corruption is vital in the fight against corruption.  Bringing along the people di rectly and through the Traditional Authorities by making chiefdoms part of community - level monitoring and oversight over MDAs , councils, and resource use.  Harmonis ation of salary and other payments for similar qualifications and experience across the board within the public service is critical in the fight against corruption .  People convicted of corruption banned from public offices for not less than ten years.  Ensure annual work plans and performance contracts of MDAs are developed during budget allocation and made available to the public through the media or town hall meetings.  Institute civic education programme in the primary and secondary curriculum to enhance national patriotism in the young generation.  Review and harmonise the National procurement manual with international procurement standards.  Ensure review of systems and processes of corruption high - risk MDAs and monitor review recommendations to enhance effective and efficient operations of MDAs .  Improve CSOs involvement in the fight against corruption through strong collaborations and partnership with integrity institutions like ACC.  Ensuring development and regular update of institutional service charters for all MDAs and displayed at strategic locations that enhance access to the public.  Ensuring Internal audit recommendations of MDAs are prioriti s ed and set as part of MDAs performance objectives.  Intensify Pay No Bribe campaign across the country to increase public awareness and instead of the fare of paying or receiving b ribes.
