TINZ Update

Transparency International New Zealand is involved in an unprecedented number of initiatives.

Chair Suzanne Snively and her fund raising team are actively recruiting members and partners. This is to ensure TINZ sustainability and to support hiring a full time paid executive director to be a source of templates, training, research and reporting about effective ways of addressing corruption.

TINZ has been engaged in finalising the Pacific Integrity Initiative in partnership with MFAT and UNDP which will provide desperately needed resourcing so that the four Pacific TI chapters can reduce corruption.

Implementation of the 2013 Integrity Plus National Integrity Systems Assessment recommendations continues with TINZ initiatives and in conjunction with work being conducted through the State Services Commission who have embraced the effort and The Open Government Partnership National Action Plan.

TINZ continues to monitor the progress of the Crimes Bill while advocating at every step for the acknowledgement that facilitation payments are bribes and outlawing them.

Other projects include Business Integrity, contributing to TI's Strategy 2020, School Civics Curriculum, corruption in sport, and member seminars.

Now is a great time to become involved in Transparency International New Zealand. Join, donate or contribute your time.
