Since 2017, Ukraine has had no anti-corruption strategy. Anti-corruption strategy has to define the state anti-corruption policy. To change this, the Center for Political and Legal Reforms developed the document which defines 8 key areas where the changes are required by 2024. A separate section of the document includes all NAKO’s recommendations in the defence and security sector. Later on, the Strategy was adopted by the Parliament in the first reading as a draft law. NAKO has partnered with the National Anti-Corruption Agency (NAZK) to advance this.
For the defence and security sector, the Strategy defines 4 key areas of work and the expected results, namely:
- to take an inventory and register all the MoD land;
- to ensure state registration of the MIC;
- to create the accounting and monitoring system of fuel consumption;
- to take an inventory and assessment of the MIC intellectual property items.
- to widely apply open procedures in defence procurement;
- to decrease the unreasoned level of secrecy and create a transparent pricing system;
- to introduce opportunities for procurement based on the product life cycle cost;
- to create the electronic register of state contract performers;
- to ensure coordination with the NATO Support and Procurement Agency.
- to introduce the international requirements and standards in state guaranteeing of the quality of defence goods and services;
- to establish the state authorized body to ensure state guaranteeing of defence goods and services.
- to introduce automation and ensure audit of the existing defence housing queue;
- to introduce alternative mechanisms to solve the servicemen/women’s housing problems.
