- Personal Integrity Assessment Tools
- Institutional Integrity Assessment Tools
Public integrity assessments tools usually aim to assess the institutional framework for promoting integrity and combating corruption across the public sector, and/or to identify corruption or corruption risks within specific government agencies and/or among public officials. There are only a few integrity assessments tools that have been implemented to rate public official integrity and ethics in countries across the globe such as integrity tests for pre-employment screening, integrity testing, and life-style checks.
At the institutional level, integrity assessment tools are more commonly used at the institutional level to assess the role, capacity and/or effectiveness of specific anticorruption related institutions, such as anti-corruption agencies or internal oversight and regulatory bodies within public sector agencies. Assessments also aim to identify the preconditions for corruption which exist in a particular institutions as well as the actual incidence of corruption drawing on the understanding and experiences of public officials.
