University system study and review
The University Systems Study and Review is a fact-finding and problem-solving strategy that involves the examination of current policies, practices, procedures, behaviours and systems of public bodies to determine if they aid corruption and to what extent they are prone to do so. The report of such exercise is expected to be reviewed with the institution/agency involved for implementation. A pilot run of the exercise was commissioned in order to test the methodology and provide a template for use in all the universities. For the pilot study, three universities were randomly selected from among the 124 universities after stratification on the basis of proprietorship. The pilot study showed that the conduct of the System Study and Review is feasible. It provided lessons for developing a process template. A preventive template also emerged as an outcome of the study. This report is anticipated to provide a template for the product of similar studies in all the universities.
