Organisation and Staff

The CPC in the strict sense consists of three members – Chief Commissioner and two deputies. They decide on substantial matters (rulling on corruption, conflict of interest, breach of ethics, adopting recommendations, etc.) as a collegial body with majority of votes. They are supported by a number of professional staff with different expertise (in the field of law, economics, audit, social sciences, information technology, conducting investigations etc.) working in the CPC three main Units: the Secretariat, the Investigation and Oversight Bureau and the Center for Prevention and Integrity of Public Service.

Employes of the CPC are recruited directly by the CPC in an open and competitive recruitment procedure or seconded from other state institutions; they are public servants and are bound by salary scheme and regulations governing the public service.

The CPC is organized as appropriate to its jurisdiction and tasks, which are preventive and regulatory / investigative. It follows a two-pillar approach.

The first pillar (Investigation and Oversight Bureau) has an eight years history of specialised anti-corruption bodies and it collects and monitors the declaration of assets of high ranking public officials, investigates cases of corruption, conflict of interest, violations of lobbying regulations and other violations under the jurisdiction of the CPC.

The second pillar (Center for prevention and integrity of public service) includes, inter alia, the analysis of corruption phenomena, the development and implementaiton of various preventive measures, raising public awareness and enhancing integrity, including the activities related to preparation of integrity plans, analysis and identification of corruption risks and factors, cooperating with civil society, academic and research institutions etc..

Secretariat is responsible for the systemic development of the doctrine of anti-corruption and ethics of the public sector, undertakes analysis and research on corruption with the use of information technologies, carries out anti-corruption screening of legislation, is responsible for international activities of the CPC and public relations as well as performing administrative, personnel, logistical and financial functions for the CPC.

While the legal framework and the material conditions for CPC work (facilities, informations technology, etc) are generally satisfactorily, the CPC currently – due to financial restraints – remains seriously understaffed – in particular given the broad new mandate under the Act passed in 2010.
