Anti-corruption and integrity in the public sector
OECD Integrity Review of Peru
Enhancing Public Sector Integrity for Inclusive Growth
Public sector integrity is crucial for sustained socioeconomic development. This report
assesses Peru's integrity system at both the central and subnational levels of government.
It provides a set of recommendations to strengthen and consolidate this system, instil
a culture of integrity, and ensure accountability through control and enforcement.
Beyond reviewing the institutional arrangement of the system, the report analyses
the policies and practices related to political finance, the promotion of public ethics
and the management of conflict of interests, lobbying, whistleblower protection, internal
control and risk management, as well as the disciplinary regime and the role of the
criminal justice system in containing corruption.

The CAN (Comisión de Alto Nivel Anticorrupción) could focus on its mandate of ensuring
policy coordination and implementation of national anti-corruption plans, including
the Secretariat of Public Management, the National Civil Service Authority and the
National Office of Electoral Processes.
Peru's framework for promoting a culture of integrity in the public administration
is fragmented. Peru would benefit from developing a single policy framework for promoting
integrity and managing conflict-of-interest situations.
Peru's internal control system could be improved by integrating internal control into
public management, making a clearer distinction between internal control and external
audit, and introducing a dedicated corruption risk management policy.
