Strengthening Action Against Corruption (STAAC) is a five-year programme that commenced in January 2016. It was designed to address concerns that increasing levels of corruption were a key risk to development progress in Ghana. The programme aims to increase the risks for those engaged in corrupt activities, resulting in a reduction in the incidence of corruption at all levels. The programme seeks to support both the supply and demand sides. It seeks to improve the performance of all aspects of the anti-corruption chain – deterrence, detection and sanctioning, including asset tracing and recovery. It provides support to key agencies, including the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC), Registrar-General’s Department (RGD), Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO), Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Economic and Financial Crime Courts (EFCC), Ghana Audit Service (GAS) among others, to work more effectively together on the identification and handling of corruption risks and cases. On the demand-side, the programme provides technical assistance and financial support to expand work undertaken by think tanks, CSOs and the media to monitor and report on the extent and modalities of corruption in Ghana and Government performance in relation to preventing and addressing corruption. Support to selected civil society partners seek to ensure that interventions are based on robust analysis and strategic vision and are followed through to a logical conclusion. Finally, the programme seeks to increase national and international incentives for the Government of Ghana to take action against corruption, by strengthening dialogue on the subject between the Government and civil society, the private sector and donors.
