The Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency and the National Integrity Action this morning signed a sub-award agreement, further strengthening the partnership between the two agencies.
The sub-award to MOCA as with existing sub-awards to CAPRI, WROC, CVSS and the YCWJ – forms part of NIA’s mandate to building integrity, strengthen governance and combat corruption. In this, NIA is pleased to have the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The main elements of the sub-award to MOCA are to support and strengthen the agency’s public education and capacity building efforts.
Professor Munroe in his remarks highlighted that the NIA has been advocating a strengthening of anti-corruption legislation and partnering with the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP) in their training efforts towards the fight against crime and corruption. This agreement signing with MOCA marks another step our support of the agencies work.
Col. Edwards in his remarks stated that the agency is grateful for this award, as it will assist in MOCA’s public awareness and outreach campaigns. He also expressed gratitude to the USAID and pledged MOCA’s continued commitment to the fight against Major Organised Crime and Corruption.
