Applications are now open for IACA’s annual Procurement Anti-Corruption Training, which will take place this year from 17 July to 18 August. The application deadline is 18 April.
The programme aims to equip professionals with sound anti-corruption strategies and expose them to the vulnerabilities of the public procurement process. Topics covered include, among others, corruption during emergencies, contract formations and performance, human rights, e-procurement, bribery, and collusion.
Comprising one week of on-site training (31 July to 4 August) at the Academy’s Laxenburg campus with distance learning, Procurement Anti-Corruption Training is taught by leading experts Christopher Yukins of the George Washington University Law School and Max Kaiser Aranda from the Mexican Institute for Competitiveness (IMCO). Both are members of IACA’s frequent visiting faculty.
Participants who successfully complete the programme are entitled to receive 6 ECTS credits under the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System.
Professionals with a minimum of three years of relevant work experience dealing with procurement issues are encouraged to apply. The training is aimed at, among others, procurement officials, legal professionals, and compliance officials.
IACA offers a limited number of scholarships covering the programme fee, travel, and accommodation expenses. These scholarships are highly competitive and are available to citizens of Least Developed Countries (LDCs), as defined by the United Nations.
