Transparency International:NIS Supplemental Reports Released
NIS Supplemental Reports Released
greetings. Best wishes for a peaceful and fulfilling
Four supplementary papers commissioned to augment
the just released Integrity Plus 2013 New Zealand National
Integrity System Assessment have been released and posted to
our website. They are all available at the Integrity Plus 2013 New Zealand NIS
landing page where you will also find the full report and
its executive summary.
Alternatively each supplementary
paper may be directly downloaded:
• Crown Entities
• Environmental Governance
• Fiscal Transparency
• Public Procurement
These papers cover
areas of particular importance to the New Zealand NIS which,
in the opinion of TINZ, needed to be considered in more
detail or greater depth than was practical in the confines
of the standard NIS assessment report.
