The Government Accountability Initiative is (GAI) is a four-year, $8.5 million activity intended to foster government accountability and to increase connections among and between government bodies and members of the public.
GAI supports accountability at all levels of government in Serbia through three parallel components: – (1) selected local self-governments, (2) independent oversight institutions and (3) specialized anticorruption courts and public prosecutors.
GAI’s expected results are:
- Increased public participation in local government decision making and oversight;
- Enhanced government performance and accountability through risk-based prevention and detection of corruption;
- Increased efficiency in adjudication of corruption cases by courts and prosecutors.
The Initiative is being implemented by Checchi and Company Consulting
