The role of the Anti-Corruption Champion is to ensure a coherent and joined-up approach to combating international corruption and the role has recently been expanded to include domestic corruption. Officials across a wide range of Departments work on different aspects of the anti-corruption agenda, including in the Cabinet Office, Home Office, the Department for International Development, Her Majesty's Treasury, the Ministry of Justice, the. Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Attorney-General's Office.
There are a range of co-ordinated initiatives being undertaken across government. For example, the UK is currently lead co-chair of the Open Government Partnership and is in the process of developing in partnership with non-governmental organisations and other Government Departments, what the UK can do collectively to tackle corruption more effectively. We will outline this vision in the Open Government Partnership's final National Action Plan which will be published at the end of October 2013.
