The project Support to Anti-Corruption Efforts in Kosovo (SAEK II) is expected to have a positive impact on reducing the level of corruption in Kosovo by strengthening monitoring and oversight mechanisms of institutions to perform in an efficient, transparent, accountable, and gender sensitive manner.

In order to support an increase in the number and quality of corruption and financial crime cases, UNDP is engaged in providing enhanced technical support to build the capacities of financial investigators to uncover illicit financial flows. In partnership with the Kosovo Association of Accountants and Auditors (SCAAK), a training programme will be developed for prosecutors, police, FIU officials, KAA officials, investigative journalists and court appointed financial experts on forensic accounting. SCAAK is currently delivering prerequisite courses in accounting and tax auditing according to the Kosovo legal framework. The participants of the first course will continue on to the advanced course on forensic accounting and fraud examination which will be delivered by UNDP. Certificates will be issued through the official accreditation process for those that pass the exam for (module 1) prerequisite accounting courses and the (module 2) licensed forensic accountant/fraud examiner course. The courses will focus on practical matters related to the study, identification and analysis of corruption, money laundering and other financial crime. 

For this purpose, UNDP will provide an international expert to draft the curricula for a course on fraud examination and forensic accounting.
