This assessment received government comments and feedback on the finalised data. These comments have been incorporated into the assessment at the GDI research team’s discretion. Usually the comments received highlight where a bill is in formulation, or has recently passed into law, and this has been missed by the country assessor. Only comments which are grounded in evidence are incorporated into the assessment.

Poland performs well on some indicators related to transparency of budgets and anti-corruption policies. However, systematic democratic backsliding has weakened defence governance overall. High levels of party discipline limit the independence of parliamentary scrutiny, weakening independent oversight of the sector, and procurement processes are vulnerable to corruption. Whistleblowing is also actively discouraged in the sector and corruption risks are high for military operations.
