Advancements in analytics and artificial intelligence in the last decade have made data-driven approaches to prevent and detect fraud and corruption a modern-day necessity for governments. At the same time, these advancements have multiplied the challenges and risks, including increased concerns for privacy protection and cyber-security. As the standard-bearers for integrity, accountability and trust in government, anti-corruption and oversight bodies are at the forefront of these issues. For these institutions, keeping pace with digital transformation can be seen both as a strategic imperative and a fundamental duty to citizens.
How does the OECD contribute?
The OECD supports our communities of anti-corruption and oversight bodies to advance their digital strategies and strengthen their use of technology, data and analytics by:
Advancing digital reforms within anti-corruption and oversight bodies to ensure a high-functioning data ecosystem grounded in strategic objectives and collaborative partnerships.
Co-creating tools and advanced risk models for uncovering risks in specific areas, including public procurement, infrastructure and public grants.
Building networks and learning opportunities, including a Community of Practice (CoP) for policymakers and practitioners focused on technology and analytics for public integrity.
