Extended deadline: IDLO is seeking for Senior Researcher, Secretariat, Independent Anti-Corruption Advisory Committee (CCIA)

Overview & Responsibilities

On  7 June 2021, President Maia Sandu issued a decree providing the legal basis for the establishment of the Independent Anti-Corruption Advisory Committee, henceforth to be known by its acronym in the Romanian language, CCIA (“Comitetul Consultativ Independent Anticoruptie”).

The CCIA has as its main purpose to analyse systemic issues of corruption that cut across Moldovan institutions, in the expectation that ways and means to improve anti-corruption efforts will be identified and implemented by the relevant parties. The Committee collects information from a broad range of sources which, to the best of its knowledge, judgment and experience it deems reliable. Once gathered, the facts are analysed, and the analysis is used as the basis for recommendations. The Committee publishes its findings and recommendations; the latter will include which authority is responsible for implementation, together with a realistic timeline. The CCIA assumes responsibility for follow up with regular periodicity on its recommendations with the implementing bodies, to see what progress has been made. It again makes public its findings related thereto, until the recommendations have been implemented satisfactorily or, if not, it makes public the reasons given by the target implementation body, with a CCIA opinion as to the reasons given. This is an iterative process of indefinite length.
