Transparency International published the 2012 Corruption Perception Index yesterday. Corruption has become a dominant theme in the media these days. The media doesn’t seem to be very interested in reporting improved anti-corruption efforts in countries around the world.
Yet, many countries have dramatically reduced corruption perception over the past year. These include remarkable achievements by FreeBalance government customers.
- Timor-Leste has improved 30 places
- Mongolia has improved 26 places
- Liberia has improved 16 places
- Sierra Leone has improved 12 places
- Kosovo has improved 7 places
Government Resource Planning and Anti-Corruption
FreeBalance is a provider of GRP software and services. The FreeBalance technology has been used by governments to reduce corruption. Of course, GRP is a tool within the anti-corruption toolkit as I‘ve written in detail in a previous blog entry. GRP systems can prevent and detect corruption in public finances. But, there needs to be government commitment to reduce corruption.
