In this regard, from April 16 to 18, 2013,
For this reason,
In this Fifth Round, which is to begin shortly, the MESICIC will review, among others, the progress made by the States Parties with respect to systems of government hiring, procurement of goods and services, and protecting those who, in good faith, report acts of corruption. Implementation of other provisions of the Inter-American Convention against Corruption will also be reviewed.
The MESICIC is a cooperation mechanism between States, with the participation of civil society organizations, established within the framework of the OAS, in which the legal/institutional framework of each country is reviewed for suitability with the Inter-American Convention against Corruption as well as the objective results achieved therein. The incorporation of on-site visits as a stage and integral part of the MESICIC review process represents an innovative and pioneering initiative in the context of the OAS, especially for a peer review mechanism and the importance of the issues it addresses.
For more information on the MESICIC, please visit the Anti-Corruption Portal of the Americas.
