A key aim of the Public Governance Committee is to help governments better assess the implementation and impact of policies and measures in the public sector. This includes efforts to provide evidence-based comparative information on measures for fostering integrity and resistance to corruption in public organisations. This document reviews strengths and weaknesses of existing methodologies for collecting information on corruption and integrity. It also presents an alternative approach and methodologies to collect data and develop benchmarks in key components of the integrity framework. The draft report1 was reviewed by the Expert Group on Conflict of Interest on 2-3 October 2008. The Expert Group agreed on the collection of data to be included in the Government at a Glance 2009 publication. The Public Governance Committee approved this report under written procedure in November 2008.
