Peer Reviewers: Government Defence Anti-Corruption Index (GI)

The Government Defence Anti-Corruption Index (GI) is the first global analysis of corruption risks in defence establishments. The GI assesses the existence, effectiveness and enforcement of institutional and informal controls to manage the risk of corruption in defence and security institutions. Its two iterations published in 2013 and in 2015 generated a high degree of press and media attention, and have been used by governments to improve their anti-corruption practices in the defence sector.

TI Defence & Security is looking for Peer reviewers of GI assessments for Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela.

The core of the index methodology consists of a lead Country Assessor scoring and providing detailed answers, based on original and thorough research, to 77 questions, where the questions span a range of corruption risks relevant to the defence and security sector. The research requires the Assessors to engage in an in-depth qualitative research process, with primary data collection through interviews and secondary data collection through desk research.

Remuneration will be agreed on appointment, dependent upon experience.

Given the sensitive nature of the assessment, TI-DS prioritises the safety of the Country Assessor & Peer Reviews in the research process and concerns about anonymity of the Assessor/Reviewers and/or interviewees are addressed seriously.
