On 6 January 2018, under Resolution No. 207 of the Council of Ministers of 19 December 2017 (M.P. of 2018, item 12), the Government Programme for Counteracting Corruption for the years 2018–2020 (RPPK for the years 2018–2020) was adopted.
The adopted Programme is the outcome of work of the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau, undertaken as a result of arrangements between the Minister of Interior and Administration, which is responsible for the implementation of the RPPK for the years 2014–2019, and the Minister – Special Services Coordinator.
The Government Programme for Counteracting Corruption for the years 2018–2020 implements the obligation to conduct systemic actions in the field of counteracting corruption resulting from the recommendation of the Group of States Against Corruption (GRECO), recommendations of the European Union and the Council of Europe, as well as the United Nations Convention against Corruption. During its creation, the Bureau was also guided by the necessity to be coherent with the Strategy for Responsible Development for the period up to 2020 (including the perspective up to 2030), which was adopted on 14 February 2017 by the Council of Ministers and constitutes an update of the National Development Strategy 2020.
When formulating new objectives, it was assumed that the RPPK for the years 2018–2020 will act as a tool ensuring flexible planning and management of legislative, operational, preventive and educational activities undertaken by state services and authorities in the area of counteracting corruption crime. As the main objective, the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau indicated a real limitation of corruption crime in the country and raising public awareness of counteracting corrupt behavior.
