ICPC to Introduce Ethics and Compliance Score Card

Tuesday 17 February 2015

As a result of J4A’s support to the ICPC a draft Ethics and Compliance Scorecard for Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) has been developed. It is aimed at promoting ethical standards in public institutions.

On January 27, 2015 at a two-day validation workshop was held in Abuja, the ICPC stated that it is determined to introduce the Ethics and Compliance Score Card for MDAs.

When operational, the Score Card will enable the ICPC to assess the level of corruption vulnerability of public offices in Nigeria and also help to strengthen their systems, processes, procedures and mechanisms so as to ensure that there is reduced vulnerability and risk of corruption within the ministries.
