This study aimed to assess how well-prepared Ireland’s public sector bodies are to address corruption risks by examining 30 indicators in five key areas: anti-corruption and anti-bribery programmes; financial transparency; open governance; responsible political engagement; and whistleblowing policies

The research has been carried out as part of TI Ireland’s National Integrity Index (NII) series, a multi-year project based on Transparency International’s ‘National Integrity Systems’ toolkit for assessing the overall robustness of a country’s institutions and systems when it comes to prevention of corruption. The aim of the project is to highlight good practices in public disclosure, to identify areas requiring greater transparency, to recommend measures to safeguard against corruption and bribery, and to equip people working in various sectors with resources and information.  

TI Ireland carried out studies on local authorities in 2018 and 2019 and on the private sector in 2020, and the first part report on public bodies in 2021.
