About Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Committee(MEC)
In 2010, the Government of the Islamic Republic Afghanistan (GIRoA) invited the international community to form the Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC), to provide anti-corruption policy advice, and monitor and evaluate progress against specific anti-corruption benchmarks. The MEC was established jointly by the GIRoA and the international community, following the London and Kabul Conferences in January and July 2010, respectively, and by Presidential Decree 61, 2010.
The MEC is an independent agency, and is not subject to direction from either the Afghan government or from the international community. Following the London Conference, the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan invited the international community to form a joint Afghan-International monitoring and evaluation committee. On September 18, 2016, the Afghan president issued Presidential Decree No. 115. This changed the legal status, duties, scope of activities and authorities of the Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee which abrogates all previous Presidential Decrees. The MEC focuses on:
• Developing anti-corruption recommendations;
• Monitoring and evaluating the anti-corruption efforts of the Afghan government and the international community; and
• Reporting on a regular basis to the President, Parliament, and people of Afghanistan, as well as to the international community about the state of the fight against corruption.
On Oct 26, 2017, the Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC) released a comprehensive Ministry-wide Vulnerability to Corruption Assessment (MVCA) of the Ministry of Education (MOE). This Special Report is aimed at systematically identifying factors that make the MOE vulnerable to corruption and actions that can be taken to mitigate these vulnerabilities in the education sector
The Special Report contains 66 specific recommendations. MEC will actively follow up the revised recommendations and report on the status of implementation every quarter over the next 24 months.
The primary responsibility of the National M&E Officer will be to support MEC’s Ministry-Wide Vulnerability to Corruption Assessment (MVCA) follow up report by following up MEC recommendations issued to Afghan Ministry of Education (MOE) in Kabul and selected provinces.
