Are trained professionals regularly deployed to monitor corruption risk in the field (whether deployed on operations or peacekeeping missions)?
54a. Corruption monitoring
Niger score: 25/100
The country deploys no trained personnel for corruption monitoring, or informally monitors corruption with non-expert personnel.
Corruption monitors are irregularly deployed. They may not have the right expertise for the task. They may produce weak reports or may not report at all.
Expert personnel capable of monitoring corruption are regularly deployed and report on the status of corruption within mission at least once every six months. Reports contain assessments of the most significant corruption risks, the manner in which corruption can affect the goals of the mission, and the effectiveness of mitigation measures being employed.
There are regular joint missions conducted with RECAP-GIZ and IGSS to monitor corruption risks (1). Niger is a major contributor of troops to United Nations peacekeeping operations, in particular in Mali and Côte d’Ivoire. These officers are trained by the ICRC to observe international humanitarian law. The Military Code of 2003 (2), includes Articles 47 and 48 that allow the military police to follow up on all types of criminal behaviour (including corruption, which is described in Art. 228) in the field. However, the assessor found no information on corruption training prior to deployment (3).

54b. M&E policy
Niger score: 0/100
There is no M&E guidance for the mission on how to monitor corruption risks.
M&E guidance for the mission refers to monitoring corruption risks, but in a general manner. It may fail to establish the procedural basis for personnel to monitor corruption.
M&E guidance for the mission clearly specifies how to monitor corruption risks, and establishes the procedural basis for personnel to monitor corruption.
The assessor found no evidence that there is M&E guidance for the mission on how to monitor corruption risks.
Niger score: 0/100
Reports are not made available to the public or oversight bodies in any form.
