Safeguarding Ukraine's Restoration: Anti-corruption progress and the path ahead

This document takes stock of recent progress (July 2023 to February 2024) in strengthening Ukraine’s anti-corruption ecosystem with a view to safeguarding Restoration projects. It covers:

  1. Progress in enforcement, with the exposure of three corruption cases.
  2. Mitigating corruption risks in the Remediation Fund and other Restoration funding mechanisms, including prioritisation, project selection and budget allocation.
  3. Increasing Restoration project transparency through the DREAM system.
  4. Connecting Restoration projects with wider strategic planning.
  5. Strengthening auditing oversight over the Restoration process.
  6. Development of the public procurement system, including by increasing the share of competitive procurement, making direct contracts more transparent, and strengthening audits and controls.

It is a joint publication of Transparency International Ukraine and the Basel Institute on Governance. A forthcoming sister publication will provide an overview of anti-corruption progress and gaps not directly related to the Restoration.
