Ammon News - The Jordan Integrity and Anti-Corruption Commission (JIACC) on Monday launched the National Integrity Index (NII), which aims to gauge public institutions' adherence to national integrity regulations and anti-corruption prevention standards.

The NII, which was launched in collaboration with the Al-Hayat Center for Civil Society Development (RASED), targets approximately one hundred bodies and institutions, according to Muhannad Hijazi, chairman of JIACC, who stated that it aims to support the commission's efforts to combat corruption and foster an anti-corruption public culture.

Hijazi told a press conference that the project is part of the commission's initiatives and efforts to strengthen its partnership with civil society and promote a culture of integrity and good governance that paves the way for sustainable development.

He explained that the index is a step on the committee's journey toward an automated work methodology that saves time and effort and provides a solid analytical infrastructure that enables the decision-maker to make informed and trustworthy decisions without speculation.

Amer Bani Amer, director general of RASED, described the indicator as "qualitative", stating that it will help identify corruption crimes in terms of type, quantity, and their distribution across sectors and regions.

He stressed that the project will assist in enhancing the skills of government and semi-government employees, paving the way for an annual national integrity report.
