The oversight over the implementation of the national Strategy for Fight Against Corruption is an important mean that should ensure that the Strategy delivers concrete results for the citizens, which is the objective of any public policy. The key to ensuring successful oversight is to recognize whether the reforms included in the Strategy are effective, and whether they reduce the corruption or improve the lives of citizens. Hence, three sets of information need to be supervised:

  1. How the activities that have been met achieve the objectives set in the Strategy – objectives that should lead to good governance;
  2. What resources are used for implementation of the Strategy and is it necessary to increase the investment in the anti-corruption activities;
  3. How current is the Strategy and what needs to be updated

In this way, the oversight is focused on determining success and failure, but it links that situation to the investment as an important factor of progress and expression of the political will necessary for the anti-corruption.
