MACPI toolkit

The Monitoring Anti-Corruption Policy Implmentation (MACPI) Toolkit is a comprehensive set of tools developed to monitor the anti-corruption activities in a given institution and to assess the results of these activities. The methodology provides national and EU policy makers with an anti-corruption enforcement monitoring system that combines qualitative and quantitative appraisals and is implemented through public-private partnerships.

The MACPI Tool is intended to improve the self-assessment capabilities of the institutions for monitoring the progress of their internal anti-corruption enforcement activities.

The proposed approach elaborates a replicable model, which for the first time integrates input evaluation (e.g. regulatory reviews such as GRECO, UNCAC or OECD, as well as EU’s CVM) and output measurement (tools such as CPI and CSD’s CMS). Neither of these two methods can produce a comprehensive view of anti-corruption enforcement progress. The novelty of the proposed approach is in: (a) providing a mechanism for linking data on corruption victimization with the assessments of anti-corruption enforcement; thus allowing for assessing the dynamic interrelation between trends in corruption victimization and trends in corruption enforcement gaps; and (b) integrating them into a single toolkit .

The Tool is developed within the framework of the MONAC project with the financial support of the Prevention and Fight against Crime Programme at the Directorate-General Home Affairs of the European Commission*.
