Recommendations for the Anti-Corruption Program of the DPS of Ukraine for 2023-2025

Reading time: 4 min.

The main vectors of the anti-corruption policy of the DPS of Ukraine

  • Creating more convenient and legal ways to meet the needs of individuals and legal entities, in contrast to existing corrupt practices
  • Ensuring the inevitability of legal responsibility for corruption and corruption-related offenses, which will create an additional deterrent effect for all subjects of legal relations
  • Digital transformation of the implementation of powers and functions of the DPS, transparency and openness of data in order to minimize corruption risks.

Implementation of the anti-corruption program of the DPS of Ukraine

For the purpose of personal responsibility for compliance with the Anti-corruption Program, the structural units of the DPS are obliged to conduct briefings and inform about the provisions of the program, and subordinate employees to certify with their own signature the fact of full understanding of the provisions of the program. Heads of structural subdivisions are obliged to inform the DPS of Ukraine in writing about conducting briefings and attach information with the signatures of subordinate employees within 30 days.

Newly appointed employees are informed by signature of familiarization with the anti-corruption program before appointment to the position, and the head of the structural unit ensures that the DPS of Ukraine is informed in the manner described above.

Heads of structural divisions bear personal responsibility for not familiarizing subordinate employees with the Anti-corruption program or improperly familiarizing them with it.

Ensuring control over compliance with the anti-corruption program of the DPS of Ukraine

The function of monitoring compliance with the anti-corruption program of the DPS of Ukraine will be entrusted to the Department for Prevention of Corruption Detection of the DPS of Ukraine, which within 30 days from the moment of approval of the anti-corruption program, is obliged to bring internal legal acts that regulate its activities into compliance.

The Department develops and submits to the head of the DPS of Ukraine for approval the procedure for checking the employees of the DPS for compliance with the anti-corruption program, including integrity, and monitors the way of life for compliance by employees with anti-corruption legislation.

In order to achieve the goals of the anti-corruption program, the Department collects and processes data about DPS employees, their business, professional, moral qualities, compliance of their financial situation with officially confirmed incomes of employees, control over objective and impartial decision-making related to the performance of DPS functions and other measures aimed at preventing manifestations of corruption in the DPS.

Identified facts of violation of anti-corruption legislation are the basis for official inspections, the results of which are submitted to the head of the DPS of Ukraine and the Council of Public Control.

The Department implements mandatory reporting by the employees of the DPS of Ukraine, who have received any known information about corruption in the DPS. Establishing the facts, not reporting corruption, is the basis for an official inspection of such a DPS employee. DPS employees who report corruption and take measures to prevent it are encouraged by the DPS management.

Implementation of the system for ensuring compliance with the anti-corruption program of the DPS of Ukraine vertically:

  1. Head of DPS
  2. Department for prevention of detection of corruption
  3. Heads of structural divisions
  4. Responsible person for compliance with anti-corruption legislation in the structure of structural subdivisions.

Control and responsibility are carried out also according to the principle of reciprocity.

In the case of detection of signs of corruption in the activities of the head of the DPS, the head of the Department for the Prevention of Corruption is obliged to inform the Council of Public Control and competent law enforcement agencies.

In the case of detection of corruption in the actions of the head of a structural unit, the persons responsible for compliance with anti-corruption legislation in the structure of structural units inform the Department for the Prevention of Corruption Detection or the head of the DPS.

The development of the powers and responsibilities of each link in the implementation of the system of ensuring control over compliance with the anti-corruption program of the DPS of Ukraine requires additional attention. As, for example, it is done in BEB, but in more detail with an emphasis on the responsibility of specific officials.

The register of corruption risks and measures to influence them require deeper and systematic processing.
