OECD Integrity Review of Brazil
Managing Risks for a Cleaner Public Service
Brazil’s agenda to enhance integrity and prevent corruption is particularly critical
in order to address a number of challenges facing the country’s public administration.
The challenges include managing risks associated with innovation in public service
delivery, achieving value for money and minimising waste in government operations
and meeting the expectations of citizens regarding the conduct of public organisations.
This report is the first integrity review of a G20 country undertaken by the OECD.
It assesses the implementation and coherence of instruments, processes and structures
to create a culture of integrity and to manage risks affecting the operations and
performance of public organisations.
The report analyses four main areas of focus : (i) promoting transparency and citizen
engagement; (ii) implementing risk-based systems of internal control; (iii) embedding
high standards of conduct; and (iv) enhancing integrity in public procurement.
It is complemented by three case studies to highlight issues of integrity management
at the level of individual public functions, organisations and programmes: the federal
tax administration, the Family Grant (a conditional cash transfer) Programme; and
the National STD/AIDS Programme.
