Towards a coherent ethics and integrity policy
The Dutch National Office for Promoting Ethics and Integrity in the Public Sector advises and supports public sector organisations in the development and implementation of ethics and integrity policy.
Integrity is one of the most important aspects of good governance. Citizens depend on the public services and these can only be trusted if civil servants act ethically. This is an important subject which is receiving increasing attention. Integrity is seen as a precondition for the quality and proper functioning of the public sector.
- The National Integrity Office
The Minister for the Interior and Kingdom Relations coordinates and promotes integrity for the public sector in the Netherlands. In this role, the Minister has established the National Integrity Office. The Office was set up to help government organisations improve their integrity policies.
- Vision of integrity
The main aim of the Dutch National Integrity Office is to improve the learning skills of organisations so as to enable them to shape their own ethics and integrity policies. We use a broad definition of integrity since it involves much more than laws, regulations and procedures.
- Tasks of the National Integrity Office
To achieve its main aims the National Integrity Office fulfils three tasks.
