Background

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. The project will ensure greater transparency and accountability of those institutions responsible for delivering public services and create the necessary requirements for more participatory governance at the local level.

SAEK II takes an innovative and holistic approach towards anti-corruption by focusing both on the “supply-side” and the “demand side” of democratic governance and taking into consideration different levels of intervention, working directly with central government authorities, local/municipal actors, civil society and the citizens themselves.

Activities implemented under SAEK II Component 1 will focus on strengthening the capacities of the Kosovo Anti-Corruption Agency (KAA) to become an effective external control mechanism for ethics, integrity and efficiency of the public administration. As identified as a priority by the EC Kosovo Reports, the project will also focus on enhancing active partnership and stronger collaboration and coordination amongst relevant stakeholders on anti-corruption issues, particularly amongst the KAA, prosecution and law enforcement.

In this light, UNDP SAEK II seeks to engage an IT expert to lead the development of the technical specifications for the establishment of database within the Office of the Chief Prosecutor by which the prosecution services will have direct access to information contained in databases within the Kosovo Police and the Tax Administration. The secure database, to be housed within the Office of the Prosecutor, will allow investigators direct access to criminal intelligence, relevant police investigative information and assets, income and tax records of targets of criminal cases pertaining to organized crime and corruption related offenses. The database, to be modeled on the existing database of the Republic of Croatia State Prosecution, USKOK, will contribute to the establishment of a track record of successful corruption and organized crime cases. The IT expert will work closely with a Legal Expert for drafting the memoranda of understanding to establish the database.

It is expected that at the end of the assignment the Consultant will deliver a Functional Requirements Document for the database that describe requirements using simple, consistent and concise language, and provides cases and activity diagrams. One hard copy and an electronic copy of the Functional Requirements Document will be delivered to the SAEK II Project.
