LIPA Trains LACC Investigators
By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, December 12 (LINA) - The Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA) Monday commenced a two-week training for investigative officers of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC).

The training aims to increase the officers’ understanding of the role of various actors and international instruments in eliminating corruption, while ensuring the promotion of the rule of law.

They will be trained in examining corruption’s effects on both international and national development as well as provide insight on the roles and responsibilities of the different actors in promoting integrity in organizations.

The training will also focus on the seven building blocks of integrity and coherence of integrity policies; and the overall financial and human resources policy.

Addressing the opening ceremony, LIPA Director General Oblayon Blayon Nyemah admonished the participants to take the courses seriously.

He argued that unlike the past when Liberians were challenged with the thought that outsiders’ teaching was better, the country’s mentorship has risen to the point of becoming an acronym to most African countries.

According to him, one of the country’s biggest challenges is for citizens to take seriously the teaching of one of their own sons or daughters as most Liberians believe in the ideas of outsiders more than their own.

He said the filtering of outsiders' knowledge has helped make change possible which he wants every citizen to cherish and benefit from as well.

Fourteen LACC investigators will be trained for 60 hours, six hours a day for two weeks.

The expected outcome will be to combat fraud in procurement, conduct financial investigations and use technology to combat corruption and fraud.

The objectives of the training are to identify instruments for increasing transparency and accountability, interpret the Liberia Procurement Law and use IFMIS to assess financial malpractices.
