6. 5 FOREWORD This Strategic Plan of the Anti - Corruption Commission (ACC) defines the Commission‟s strategy, direction and decision - making and the allocation of resources for the next three years - 2021 - 2023. It spells out the mission, vision, long and short term goals of the Commission and the direction the Com mission will take to reach them. It takes cognizance of the legal and policy framework for the anti - corruption campaign in Sierra Leone, including the Anti - Corruption Act, 2008 as amended in 2019, the UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC), the National Anti - Corruption Strategy (2019 - 2023), the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the Government‟s Medium - term National Development Plan (2019 - 2023), the National Development/Poverty Reduction Strategies of Sierra Leone under Governance, Accountability and Rule of Law, among others. This Strategic Plan reflects our aim to continue to give corruption the serious attention it deserves, thereby making the scourge a very risky and unproductive enterprise. In a bid to achieve this, the strategic plan highlights the strategic objectives of all the Departments of the Commission, accompanied by Departmental Activities and the resources needed to accomplish them. There is no better time to achieve our aims than now, as we have the right set of anti - corruption laws, whic h are some of the toughest in Africa. The Commission is thankful for the required Presidential and Political will, which have been demonstrated by the material and moral supports it continues to receive from the Government of His Excellency, President Bri g. (Rtd.) Dr. Julius Maada Bio . This work is rich, as it is a product of thorough consultation with the various Departments of the Commission. I wish to express my thanks appreciation, therefore, to the Consultant, Mr. Tidiane Traore for the exceptional expertise and energy provided to produce this work; the Commission‟s Internal Audit Department headed by Mr. Victor S. Peacock for admirably coordinating the process without any reminders; and to all other Heads and staff of Departments of the Commission, for aiding and supporting the task of developing this Strategic Plan in addition to their enormous tasks. My hope for this ambitious Strategic Plan is to see that, our public education, prevention, intelligence and investigations, and prosecution drives, are strengthened to produce results in the fight against corruption for Sierra Leone in a manner never experienced before. This, therefore, calls for the required and continued support from Government, Development/Local/International Partners, Civil Societ y, the Mediaand the People of Sierra
37. 36 M. Trust building should be a priority focus with cluster members (ACC is rated at 2, on the scale of 1 - 5, 5 been highest) ; N. Serious consideration should be given to conditions of service specially with regards to prosecutors (High turnover) ; O. Proposal writing at Project Unit should be enhanced under (2) . II. ACC STRATEGIC PLAN Hypothesis: This plan is been formulated on the following hypothesis: “If a Delivery Culture is developed at ACC, technology and working tools are deployed, with a good partnership management and adequate funding, then she will be able to meet the Institution strategi c objectives” Strategic Objectives: The S trategic O bjectives of the Institution are presented in the following Matrix (Tables)
11. 10 FIGURE 1: CLASSIC PLANNING MODEL E. THE NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AGENDA 1. Policy F ramework The ACC Strategic Plans are linked to the National D evelopment/Poverty Reduction Strategies of Sierra Leone under Governance, Accountability and Rule of Law. There have been various development plans since 2002 . There are four in the series : National Development Plans ( “ NDPs ” ) referred to as Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers ( “ PRSPs ” ) . The first fully fledged PRSP set the stage for a stable society with a focus on peace consolidation:
18. 17 As stated in the National Development Plan “The realization of this vision requires a long - term plan of 20 years, allowing for the application of coherent programmes within a framework of policies and legislation that are consistently enforced. The completion of such a long - term plan involves the projection of different scenarios based on in - depth studies and consultations, revisiting currently accepted assumptions of the country‟s growth trajectory and more robust methods for addressing regional issues. This must be done if the country is to emerge from what appears to be a low - level income trap, where signs of apparent progress are followed by dramatic reversals. Th e first year of this plan is therefore to be implemented in tandem with the formulation/finalization of the 20 - year plan . “ Lessons learn ed in the implementation of the previous Strategic Plan (2017 – 2020); and emerging policy, legal and institutional issues in the fight against corruption which include the Amendments to the Anti - Corruption Act of 2008. The realization of the vision is greatly dependent on the eradication of corruption, economic crime and unethical conduct in all Sectors o f the economy”. 1. KEY ACHIEVEMENTS OF 2018 - 2020 STRATEGIC PLAN In line with the NACS focus areas , achievements will focus on the following (Education, corruption Prevention, Enforcement, and Institutional Capacity Building). The rational is that “enforcement should be the centre of the Strategy , and that successful fight against corruption must involv e practical enforcement actions on major targets” Highlights below:

During this migration, members must keep in mind that improvement is cumulative, that the process is dynamic, and that some changes might occur simultaneously for some members‟ institutions. Based upon this understanding, all sub - clusters comprising the Anti - Corruption clusters in Sierra Leone devised migration strategies. Although t he strategies identified for Anti - Corruption are country - wide in scope, each sub - cluster within each main clusters needs to define the particularities of its own migration strategy, which will lead to different visions of overall cluster goals. B. P ARTNERS HIP ASSESS MENT We understand that one of the priorities of the ACC is to build partnership and collaboration w ith the Government and all A nti - Corruption Cluster and stakeholders. Hence, we consider partnership evaluation as one of the priorities. We will use
17. 16 administrative and other measures to tackle corruption: a. T he C onvention aims to achieve five objectives: Promote and strengthen anti - corruption mechanisms; P romote, facilitate and regulate cooperation among state parties; C oordinate and harmonize policies and legislation between state parties; R emove obstacles to the enjoyment of human rights; and to E stablish conditions necessary to foster transparency and accountability in the management of public affairs The Economic Commission of West Africa State of Anti - Corruption Authorities b. Sierra Leone is a founder member of the West Africa Association of Anti - Corruption Authorities, which was founded in 2006. The overall objective of the is to promote and facilitate regional cooperation, mutual legal and technical assistance in the prevention and comba ting of corruption in the region, sharing of information and capacity enhancement of member institutions in the conduct of their anti - corruption mandate. c. In lieu of this the G overnment of Sierra Leone developed a National Anti - Corruption Strategy to addre ss the problems. The strategy covers the period between 2018 – 2023 that directed the Anti - Corruption Commission to drive and execute the Plan . However it is to be noted that the Anti - Corruption Commission had already a S trategic P lan to deal with the issue of corruption in place that run from 201 8 - 2020, with a two year ahead of the national plan. It is now evident that these two years served a learning period and can now harmonize its strategy with the National Anti - Corruption. As the driver and impl ementing agency of the National Strategy, the Commission is now developing a new strategy with a different approach as a Delivery Unit that will be aligned with the National Anti - Corruption Strategy and the country National Development Plan (2019 - 2023). At the core of the plan is the vision of Sierra Leone as a middle - income country by 2039.

Regional and International Instruments A host of Regional and International Development blue prints including United Nations‟ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Africa Agenda 2063 serve to reinforce the national development agenda . 3. United Nations Convention against Corrupt ion Sierra Leone signed and ratified the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and deposited its in strument of ratification, on 9th December 2003. The Convention obligates each member state to develop comprehensive measures for prevention, law enforcement, international cooperation, asset recovery, technical assistance and information exchange as respon ses for dealing with the global problem of corruption . 4. United Nations Sustainable Development Goals World L eaders adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty on September 2015 during the UN Sustainable Development Summit held in New York. The SDG number 16 seeks to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective accountable and inclusive institutions at all l evels. 5. Africa n Union Agenda 2063 The Golden Jubilee Summit of the Africa Union held in May 2013 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia preparedaContinental 50 - Year Agenda , known as Agenda 2063.The Agenda has seven aspirations of which aspiration 3 fosters: good governance, democracy, and respect for huma n rights, justice and the rule of law. 6. African Union Convention on Preventing and Combating Corruption Sierra Leone is a State Party to the African Union Convention on Preventing and Combating Corruption ( “ AUCPCC ” ) having signed the Convention in July, 2003 and ratified it in February2007. The Convection criminalizes corruption in the private and public sector, obligating state parties to adopt legislative,
14. 13 CLUSTER 4 GOVERNANCE AND ACCOUNTABILITY FOR RESULTS A. STRATEGIC FOCUS AREA and ROLE of ACC 1. Policy Fighting corruption and I llicit F inancial F lows: “Corruption and illegal financial flows have been some of the most persistent challenges facing successive governments, posing a significant threat to socio - economic grow th, development, and stability. Abundant evidence shows that fighting corruption and illicit financial flows at all levels is crucial for alleviating extreme poverty and boosting private sector growth and development. The lesser the incidence of corruption in a country, the greater the likelihood of steady economic growth, as investor confidence will increase significantly.” “Leakages and extra - legal activities in revenue generation sectors have contributed immensely to the poor performance of Sierra Leone in this global integrity barometer. For instance, the annual revenue loss caused by illegal fishing in Sierra Leone is estimated to be in the region of US$29 million. The promulgation of strong legislative instruments such as the Anti - Corruption Act of 2000, which established an independent Anti - Corruption Commission, and the 2008 Anti - corruption Act, which further enhanced the powers of the commission, including the power to prosecute, has done little to improve the situation of corruption in th e country.” “Furthermore, despite other concrete policy interventions such as the implementation of the National Anti - Corruption Strategy, the introduction of a systems and processes review as a prevention mechanism that mainly targets government MDAs, an d smart public education and outreach strategies, including the „Pay No Bribe‟ campaign, corruption continues to ravage the fabric of Sierra Leonean society. This has significantly undermined the country‟s revenue generation capacity, destroyed the reputat ion of the country in the international.” Within this contest ACC strategic approach has to be a paradigm shift by applying the 80/20 rules with more focus on the following research outcome of Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (“ OCED ”)
9. 8 In 2017, the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index (“CPI”) ranked Sierra Leone 130 out of 175 countries, with this in mind the Government of Sierra Leone has engaged itself in the fight against corruption and have been able to bring the country ranking to 119 (2019 P erception R eport ). Mu ch needs to be done and it is the objective of this S trategy to bring that ranking below 80. Sierra Leone is a signatory to various I nternational and R egional C onventions, where the commitment of the Nation to fight corruption is expressed . 3. In developing countries, where there is high demand for increased domestic resource mobilization to finance development, illicit financial flows drastically reduce the availability of such revenues in the following ways: Funds that should circulate in the country‟s eco nomy as investment and taxes paid into public coffers end up abroad; Public funds are siphoned through embezzlement instead of being spent on public services; These are just a few examples of how illicit financial flows reduce the resources available to d eveloping countries. The consequences, to name just a few, include fewer hospitals and schools, fewer police officers, and fewer roads and bridges to facilitate trade. The existence of this criminal activity also demands the reallocation of S tate resources from other public investment in order to fight such activity 1 . Finally, money laundering is harmful to the financial sector as it undermines the capacity to attract investors and to fuel the economy. One has to recognize that there is a strong relation between corruption and illicit flow of funds (IFFs) : “There is a close relationship between IFFs and corruption since the former is often a result of the latter. The literature on IFFs and corruption tends to show that there is a reciprocal causality betwe en IFFs and corruption. Corruption is a source of IFFs and an enabler of money laundering, and money laundering allows for the proceeds of corruption to be hidden away and used.” 2 Because of this strong relation in most countries the two issues are addressed by the Anti - Corruption Commission, which is not the Sierra Leone case. This needs be 1 UNODC:2011 United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime 2 Illicit Financial Flow from Developing Countries (OECD) 2014
31. 30 the process is dynamic, and that some changes might occur simultaneously for some members‟ institutions. Based upon this understanding, all sub - clusters comprising the Anti - Corruption clusters in Sierra Leone devised migration strategies. Although the strategies identified for Anti - Corruption are country - wide in scope, each sub - cluster within each main clusters needs to define the particularities of its own migration strategy, which will lead to different visions of o verall cluster goals. Interventions • Use level of operational Efficiency • Identify ranking level that can accept the level of Efficiency deployed in three years • When tested and deployed, use lessons learnt to identify new Strategy and build level of effici ency required for the next target 4. INTERVENTION • Use level of operational Efficiency • Identify ranking level that can accept the level of Efficiency deployed in three years • When tested and deployed, use lessons learnt to identify new Strategy and build level of efficiency required for the next target. The foundation of the strategic map is the ACC delivery Capacity, and Capabilities that are governed by its human resources, its working tools and the technology deployment, it is therefore imperative that the building of the Delivery Capacity be its utmost priority
35. 34 I. ACC STRATEGIC PLAN KEY SUCCESS FACTORS The ACC Strategic Plan has been developed with the Goal of bringing Sierra Leone from the ranking of 119 on the Transparency International Index to 80 or less by 2023. ACC believes that if the present Strategy is effectively delivered, Sierra Leone can reach the Target. However, Management must also need to take into consideration the key success factors identified: 1. Paradigm Shift by establishing a new organizational culture ; 2. Establishing a Resilient Institution through capacity and capability building ; 3. An effective leadership at all level of the institution ; 4. Looking at the Commission as a delivery Unit ; 5. Effective and Efficient Partnership Management ; 6. An Effective and efficient communication structures ; 7. Effective and efficient resource management ; 8. High technological Deployment ; 9. Highly competent personnel ; 10. Adequate working environment and conditions ; 11. Departmental Planning Capability ; A. THE APPROACH P articipatory method using a vertical and horizontal cross - cut from departments keys staff. This type of forum is a methodology to get the best possible answer/solution to any problem through involvement of, and communication between, the relevant people who can contribute to solve that speci fic problem. This can best be achieved through vertical cross - cut and/or horizontal involvement . 1. WHY THIS APPROACH Supporting the understanding and ownership of the plan at all levels;
36. 35 Opening up involvement and communication between different levels, different disciplines (departments) and within natural work teams; Enhancing discussion, explanation, understanding and problem solving; Cutting out blockages and reducing filtering of information; Adds the personal touch; Serving as a vehicle to apply Goo d - Style leadership on a day to day basis throughout the organization; Providing a vehicle for continuous improvement through problem solving at the lowest appropriate level; Leveraging the implementation process. I. RECOMMENDATIONS A. Within this conte x t ACC strategic approach has to be a paradigm shift by applying the 80/20 rules with more focus on the following research outcome of OCED ; B. Capacity and capability building are key and should be considered as top priorities (Use Unsolicited proposals) ; C. Organizati onal Culture to be developed for sustainability and institution of a delivery culture ; D. Leadership development at various levels of the organization is critical ; E. A Cluster approach be the methodological approach to delivery on the Strategic Plan ; F. Partnershi p been key to (5) a partnership criteria should be developed having in mind value addition to delivery ; G. Risk analysis has to be an integral part of ACC s institutional development and strategy themes ; H. Communication structures and planning capacity need to be enforced ; I. Vision, Mission, Core values need be to displayed in each locations ; J. Information technology, digital platform, working tool as part of (2), this will need aggressive approach at leadership level ; K. Leadership of the plan implementation has to be established, committed and have to be available during the process ; L. Monitoring and evaluation of the plan has to be focused on key deliverable, in term of progress and impact ;
30. 29 It would be noted that the severity of the issue did depend on the relative weight (1, 2, 3) attributed to the parameter. a. Delivery Culture Time management Communication structure Leadership at all level Integrity The understanding of the Vision and Mission Performance Management Planning b. Internal Capacity at S econdary L evel (Hygiene factors & Understanding) Understanding Client/Stakeholders needs Understanding the Score Change Management Management of Change Knowledge Management Conditions of Service 3. MIGRATION METHODOLOGY Strategy is the combination of two decisions: where to compete (or in what ranking of the TI; the y - axis in the below graphic) and how to compete (or with what level of operational efficiency; the x - axis in the below graphic). Losing countries compete in high corrupted environment and culture with little policy, regulatory framework, operational efficiency in implementation monitoring and enforcement. Winning firms have chosen to compete in attractive segments with superior l evels of operational efficiency . To arrive at the productivity frontier, cluster members should have a short, medium and long - term migration strategy that takes into account the need to improve on both axes. During this migration, members must keep in min d that improvement is cumulative, that
24. ANALYTICAL TOOLS USED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE STRATEGY Various analytical tools were used to scan the organizational internal environment and capabilities and to develop the Strategies: The SWOT Analysis of the Organization Focus - Group Discussions The Spider web Analysis The Migration Methodology Partnership assessment A. SWOT ANALYSIS SWOT analysis is a planning tool that we apply to assess the current situation of ACC, identify gaps, and set directions and design strategies. SWOT stands for S trengths and W eaknesses, O pportunities and T hreats. 1. MANAGEMENT SWOT CONVERSION a. Identifying Opportunities for Improvement: In the SWOT analysis of ACC, a significant number of weaknesses have been identified. The four responses below summarize the strategic opportunities they represent: The Significant Scope for Improvement; It is better to vi ew the weaknesses as “Areas for Improvement”; The Research has identified G aps necessary to address in order to achieve the Strategic Objectives. Recognition of these gaps provides a baseline that will be used to measure and monitor progress; Management h as set high expectations for the institution which has limited funding. The gaps or areas for improvements just mirror the Strategic Objectives which have been a set level “Beyond Expectations”. The goal is to close the gaps, which will be a long and diff icult task. Recognition is the first step in the right direction: 23

8. 7 BACKGROUND A. INTRODUCTION 1. THE ANTI - CORRUPTION COMMISSION (“ ACC ”) MANDATE T he prevention, investigation, prosecution and punishment of corruption and corrupt practices and other related matters‟‟ as stipulated in the ACA 2008. FUNCTIONS To investigate instances of alleged or suspected corruption referred to it by any person or authority or which had come to its attention ; To investigate any matter, in the opinion of the C ommission, raises suspicion that any of the following ha d occurred or is about to occur; Conduct cons titu ting corruption or any economic or related offence ; Con duct liable to allow, encourage or cause corruption or an economic or related offence ; To prosecute all offences committed under this Act ; and To take all steps as may be necessary for the prevention, eradication or suppression of corruption and corrupt pr actices. 2. RATIONAL FOR THE STRATEGIC PLAN: 1. The Centre for Accountability and Rule of Law assessment of corruption in Sierra Leone, (2016 to 2018) estimates corruption cost between US$ 1.47 to 2.18 Billion and the impact on National Development cannot be neglected on the NDP . It estimated that it is at an average of 12.7% of GDP. 2. The National Anti - Corruption Strategy of Sierra Leone recognizes the following implications of corruption: The C orruption P erception S urvey of S ierra Leone 2019 reveals that corruption is not only as prevalent as during the previous years but still persistent. It also reveals that the population still perceived corruption as a serious problem (73%) second to unemployment.

The assessment of the links between inputs and intermediate out comes is vital to ascertain how the process is heading towards the higher level goals. Theory of change assessment will guid e this activity of identifying the changes occurring in between th ese major c omponents or periods 2021 - 2023. This approach will help to know the consistency of the overall goal and objectives with the Strategy. The below graph depicts the concept of the theory of change, it shows how an organization can move from the existing culture to a delivery culture, thus achieving an organizational transformation to be able to achieve Vision The Required Organizational Culture is a prerequisite for ACC to deliver on its strategic objectives. It is therefore imperative that mechanism be put in place by Manage ment to address these issues . Issues have been identified and management need to prioritize and address them. However t h is transformation has to be driven by a strong and focused leadership.
34. 33 partnership assessment framework guided by Hardy, Hudson, Waddington (2003) to assess the partnership 5 . Principle 1 – Recognise and Accept the Need for Partnership Principle 2 – Develop Clarity and Realism of Purpose Principle 3 – Ensure Commitment and Ownership Principle 4 – Develop and Maintain Trust Principle 5 – Create Clear and Robust Partnership Arrangements Principle 6 – Monitor, Measure and Learn The Partnership Assessment Parameter Key partners in the Cluster Assessment are d efined using the above principles etcetera . Each parameter was rated from 1 to 5 (5 been defined as strong and 1 as very weak ) . The output is translated into colour shades where green stand for excellent and good, yellow for fair and amber and red for weak and very weak. The strategy to be deployed is to bring critical parameters needed in a particular partnership to green. In a Cluster approach , the strategy deployed should be to bring the cluster to a desired level by improving o n wea k critical partners‟ parameters, by building a strong relationship. This may require discussions at the highest levels of both institutions .
