Technical Dialogue addresses Integrity in Public Procurement and improvement measures in Brazil

Brasília, 29 April, 2022 - On 28 April UNODC held the fifth event of the series of six Technical Dialogues, entitled "Good practices of integrity in public procurement and protection of the whistleblower in the health sector post-Covid-19".

The series of Technical Dialogues is an initiative of the global project, launched by UNODC HQ, "Ensuring effective responses to COVID-19 and future emerging crises through transnational programmes on transparency and integrity in public procurement, whistleblower protection, and oversight mechanisms in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Indonesia, Paraguay, Philippines, South Africa and Timor-Leste", with funding from the Bureau of International Law Enforcement and Narcotics of the U.S. Department of State (INL/USA).

The project assists countries in their pursuit of better response and recovery from COVID-19 and future emergency crises, with a focus on promoting transparency and integrity in public procurement, especially in the area of health, and strengthening whistleblower protection. The initiative takes place in the framework of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) of which UNODC is the guardian.

Chantal Castro presented the Good Practices Guide to Ensure Compliance of Article 9th of the UNCAC, developed by the UNODC Department of Corruption and Economic Crimes, in partnership with the International Anti-Corruption Academy, in 2013, whose Portuguese version will be launched this year.

The sixth edition of the Technical Dialogues will be held on 26 May. Registration at:
