Sovereign Project | 45348-001

Summary

The SSTA will arrange Foundation Training of newly recruited 70 officers of Anti Corruption Commission (ACC). The Govenment of Denmark will finance the entire cost of the TA.

ACC will engage country's apex training institution, Bangladesh Public Administration Training Center (BPATC), to design and deliver two Foundation Training Courses for two groups of officers. BPATC has assessed training needs of the newly recruited officers and has accordingly designed the foundation training course. These will be full time residential training of two months duration. Each of the courses consists of 12 modules in broad anti corruption, legal and administrative areas.

Description The SSTA will arrange Foundation Training of newly recruited 70 officers of Anti Corruption Commission (ACC). The Govenment of Denmark will finance the entire cost of the TA. However, the administration of the TA will be ADB's responsibility. ACC will engage country's apex training institution, Bangladesh Public Administration Training Center (BPATC), to design and deliver two Foundation Training Courses for two groups of officers. BPATC has assessed training needs of the newly recruited officers and has accordingly designed the foundation training course. These will be full time residential training of two months duration. Each of the courses consists of 12 modules in broad anti corruption, legal and administrative areas. The topics include legal framework of anti corruption, historical background, code of criminal procedures, penal code, money laundering law, evidence act, ACC law and regulations, relevant constitutional provisions, financial and commercial laws, public financial management, corruption enquiry and investigation techniques, engagement of civil society in corruption prevention, office management, service rules, use of IT in corruption prevention, case studies, report writing and presentations, etc. Senior faculty members of BPTAC along with ACC senior officers and hired experts from outside will deliver the training.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy ADB has been the major development partner of ACC and is committed to support it on a long term basis. ADB has been providing capacity development assistance to ACC under various TA projects since the agency was established in 2004. The Government of Denmark has provided substantial amount of funds for ACC's anti corruption preventive program and capacity development activities under the TA 4983: Supporting the Good Governance Program. Embassy of Denmark (EoD), Dhaka expressed its willingness to finance this capacity development assistance for ACC and wanted ADB to administer this new TA project. ADB's TA support to ACC has helped capacity development and operationalization of the ACC. However, ACC is still a new organization and capacity development assistance to ACC should be continued and sustained. This TA has been designed to finance the Foundation Training of ACC's 70 newly recruited officers. This training program for ACC's fresh recruits is expected to enhance its capacity to control corrupt practices in the country.
