OECD Integrity Review of Peru

Enhancing Public Sector Integrity for Inclusive Growth

Public sector integrity is crucial for sustained socioeconomic development. This report assesses Peru's integrity system at both the central and subnational levels of government. It provides a set of recommendations to strengthen and consolidate this system, instil a culture of integrity, and ensure accountability through control and enforcement. Beyond reviewing the institutional arrangement of the system, the report analyses the policies and practices related to political finance, the promotion of public ethics and the management of conflict of interests, lobbying, whistleblower protection, internal control and risk management, as well as the disciplinary regime and the role of the criminal justice system in containing corruption.

Main findings

The CAN (Comisión de Alto Nivel Anticorrupción) could focus on its mandate of ensuring policy coordination and implementation of national anti-corruption plans, including the Secretariat of Public Management, the National Civil Service Authority and the National Office of Electoral Processes.
Peru's framework for promoting a culture of integrity in the public administration is fragmented. Peru would benefit from developing a single policy framework for promoting integrity and managing conflict-of-interest situations.
Peru's internal control system could be improved by integrating internal control into public management, making a clearer distinction between internal control and external audit, and introducing a dedicated corruption risk management policy.
