Online Workshop on Transparency, Accountability and Ethics in Public Institutions
with a focus on Public Procurement

Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 March 2021
16:00 p.m. - 18:00 p.m. EAT (Nairobi time)
9:00 a.m - 11:00 a.m. EDT (New York time)


The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), through its Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government (DPIDG), the Kenya School of Government (KSG) and the Kenya Institute of Supplies Management (KISM) are co-organizing an online training workshop on piloting a Toolkit on Transparency, Accountability and Ethics in Public Institutions, developed by UN DESA/DPIDG. Selected modules from the Toolkit will be covered during an online training workshop. The Toolkit is part of UN DESA/DPIDG’s Curriculum on Governance for Implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Curriculum can help equip public servants with the knowledge and capacities to effectively implement the SDGs. During the training, participants will gain knowledge of key issues related to transparency, accountability and ethics in public institutions, discuss specific topics in small groups, exchange information on practical examples and lessons learned from other countries. Two modules of the Toolkit will be pilot tested during the workshop: the module on the Essentials of ethics and public integrity and the module on Transparent public procurement. The workshop will consist of a mix of presentations from guest speakers and interactive elements that engage participants and open space for discussion and exchange of experiences. Participants will be able to provide comments and feedback on the Toolkit.
