History

The global movement

Transparency International is an anti-corruption organization that was founded in 1993 in Berlin by Peter Eigen, ex-director of the World Bank. TI’s current chair of the board is Delia Rubio Ferreira. Transparency International is present in more than 110 countries. The organization is best known for the Corruption Perceptions Index and the Global Corruption Barometer. According to the 2017 Global Go To Think Index Tank Report, Transparency International ranked 51st out of 173 global think tanks. And it is ranked first among the 65 world think tanks dealing with the topic of Open and Good Governance.

Founding of the Transparency International Ukraine CSO

The Ukrainian branch of Transparency International began operations in Kropyvnytskyi (then Kirovohrad) in 1999. In October 2014, TI Ukraine received full official accreditation as a representative of the global movement. This took place at the annual meeting of Transparency International.

Activities of the organization after the Revolution of Dignity

The organization participated in the creation of the platform “Reanimation Package of Reforms” and together with partners developed draft laws that formed the basis of the future anti-corruption reform. Since then, Transparency International Ukraine has focused on building the anti-corruption ecosystem, reforming public procurement, and adopting relevant legislation. In 2016, the head office moved to Kyiv, which opened up more opportunities to promote anti-corruption reform.

TI Ukraine administered the reform of public procurement and public sales and leases. The organization transferred the relevant electronic systems to the state, whose administrators became state-owned enterprises ProZorro and ProZorro.Sale. Similarly, the organization joined the medical reform — transferred the eHealth electronic medical system to the state. Moreover, in partnership with the Reforms Delivery Office of the Ministry of Economy, it created ProZvit, a single open online database of financial reporting of state-owned enterprises, which was later transferred to the state.

The role of TI Ukraine in the development of the ecosystem of anti-corruption bodies has been significant since the beginning of the implementation of anti-corruption reform. In particular, the team, together with partners, conducted a successful advocacy campaign for the adoption of the law, which was in line with the recommendations of the Venice Commission. Transparency International Ukraine analyzed applicants for the positions of judges of the High Anti-Corruption Court. Subsequently, the organization actively provided recommendations to strengthen the resilience and capacity of anti-corruption institutions.

The organization monitors compliance with the legislation and principles of the ProZorro system in public procurement through the DOZORRO community.

At the same time, TI Ukraine analyzes policies in the field of privatization, lease of public and municipal property and formulates proposals for improving legislation to make asset management more effective.

In addition, TI Ukraine has been engaged in increasing the transparency of local self-government through the Transparent Cities program for more than 5 years. The key products of the program were the Transparency Ranking of the 100 largest cities and the Accountability Ranking of 50 cities of Ukraine. The team reviews the openness of city councils annually and provides recommendations to improve transparency and accountability practices.

Activities of the organization in times of war

Due to the full-scale war, the organization has two more important focus areas. These are transparent and effective reconstruction of Ukraine and confiscation of Russian assets that should help in the restoration of the country. Together with partners, we created the RISE Ukraine coalition to promote the principles of integrity, sustainability, and efficiency in the reconstruction of the country.
