Assessment of Bangladesh Anti-Corruption Commission 2018
Transparency International (TI) undertook an initiative aimed at strengthening anti-corruption agencies (ACAs) in the Asia Pacific Region. This initiative comprised activities that included assessments of ACAs with sustained engagement, dialogue and advocacy at both national and regional levels.
As part of this initiative Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) carried out an assessment of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) of Bangladesh between November 2015 and April 2016. The study aimed at providing the ACC with up-to-date information regarding its performance and opportunities for improvement and providing all stakeholders committed to tackling corruption in the country a better understanding of the enabling and disabling factors which affect the ACC’s efficacy. The findings of the assessment were shared with ACC high officials in March 2016 and later released through a press conference. In the following years the ACC undertook a number of initiatives with an aim to strengthen its capacity and improve its performance.
