The Liberia Media Center or LMC has formally commissioned a baseline survey to gauge knowledge, attitudes and practices on corruption in Liberia.
According to a release issue in Monrovia yesterday, the survey, which will take place in Bong, Nimba, Lofa, Bassa and Montserrado counties, will target civil society, community leaders and different interest groups. It will also seek the views of randomly selected people in the counties.
The project, known as “Because Accountability matters: Strengthening Anti-corruption Enforcement Mechanisms through Communication in Liberia”, is being funded by the Open Society Initiative for West Africa or OSIWA.
As part of the project’s over-all implementation plan, according to the release, the LMC recently held acquaintance talks with the Auditor General of the General Auditing Commission or GAC, Madam Yusador S. Gaye and the Executive Chairperson of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission or LACC, Cllr. James Verdier, who lauded the LMC’s initiative, expressing their institutions’ readiness to collaborate in the project implementation.
