Transparency International Ukraine calls on representatives of the public to nominate their candidates to the competition to the Public Council of ARMA!
The competition to become a member of the Public Council of the Asset Recovery and Management Agency (ARMA) is extended till 22 August, 2017.
The contest will be held by online voting system on September 5, 2017 from 9:00 to 21:00. After reviewing the candidates, the competition commission selected six candidates only to vote for. This number is lacking to start the next step of the competition, and therefore the launching of the Public Council at ARMA.
It is for the first time in Ukraine when the state body is established with the purpose to identify, seek and manage the proceeds of crime and money, and through corruption schemes as well. It is therefore essential to ensure proper and transparent public control. ARMA Public Council has a wide range of powers and has the right to influence the Agency’s development and its activities. Representatives of the council will monitor budget expenditures, provide expert advise on draft regulations of ARMA, take part in the selection of candidates for vacancies in the National Agency, etc. The requirements for the candidates and the details of the voting can be found following the link.
