The signing ceremony took place recently at the head office of the LACC in Congo Town. LACC Acting Chairperson, Cllr. J. Augustine Toe signed for the Commission while USAID Acting Deputy Mission Director, Mervyn Farroe signed on behalf of his organization.
The MOC states that USAID in collaboration with its implementing partner, the Legal Professional Development & Anti-Corruption Project (LPAC), will assist LACC’s Enforcement Division to streamline and amend standard operating procedures for investigating and prosecuting potential corruption cases.
LPAC will also give training and mentoring support for LACC’s monitoring and evaluation staff, programs and activities; increase capacity to prevent, investigate and prosecute corruption and educate the public about the fight against corruption.
The five year capacity development activity of the MOC is to ensure that USAID and LACC develop a framework and work plan regarding the implementation of LPAC in order to identify the roles and responsibilities on deliverables.
