About Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Committee(MEC)
In 2010, after the London and Kabul Conferences, 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 by Presidential Decree 61, 2010. In September 2016, Presidential Decree No. 115 changed the legal status, duties, scope of activities and authorities of MEC.
The MEC is independent and is not subject to direction from either the Afghan government or from the international community. 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 July 19, 2017, the Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC) released a comprehensive Vulnerability to Corruption Assessment of the Attorney General’s Office (AGO). This Special Report is aimed at systematically identifying factors that make the AGO vulnerable to corruption and actions that can be taken to mitigate these vulnerabilities.
The Special Report contains 51 specific recommendations. MEC will actively follow up the issued recommendations and report on the status of implementation every quarter over the next 24 months.
The National Consultant will work under the overall supervision of the Executive Director and the direct supervision and guidance of the M&E Team leader of MEC Secretariat.
