START MEMO PROJ-DESC:
The goal of this project is to introduce participants
to the principles of transparency in government and to
highlight the tools used to combat corruption in the
public and private sector by emphasizing separation of
powers, checks and balances, and public access to
education. The project will address the role private
citizens, the media, and civic education play in
fostering more ethical, accountable, and responsible
government. This project is intended for government
officials, business leaders, civic and community
leaders, journalists, and educators.

START MEMO POST-OBJ:
ROC needs to address transparency and good governance
as part of the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility of
the International Monetary Fund. It also needs to
address this issue in light of its expulsion from the
Kimberley Process for certification of non-conflict
diamonds. In 2003-04, an Anti-Corruption Office was
established and a government-wide anti-corruption
conference was held. The Embassy sponsored a U.S.
speaker program on anti-corruption in June 2004.
However, by the end of 2004, the anti-corruption office
was disbanded. ROC's government is aware of the need
to address transparency and good governance. Sending a
candidate to this program will provide exposure to the
importance with which transparency is treated and
regarded in the U.S. and why transparency and good
governance are beneficial.
END MEMO POST-OBJ:
START MEMO POST-RCMD:
Subject matter to be covered should include tax
collection & administration, government financial
reporting to the public and legislature, legislative
oversight, and how violations of transparency and good
governance rules are handled and addressed.
