The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine assesses corruption risks in its activities.
Corruption risk is the probability that a corruption offense or a corruption-related offense will occur that will adversely affect the achievement of certain goals and objectives by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
Identification (detection) of corruption risks is carried out by studying (analyzing) the external and internal environment of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in order to identify factors of corruption risks in regulations and organizational and managerial activities of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
The internal environment is the existing organizational and administrative processes in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, which are aimed at ensuring the implementation of its statutory functions and tasks.
The external environment is a number of environmental factors (laws, regulations, other than acts adopted directly by the authority, natural phenomena, etc.) that affect the exercise of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, while the Ministry of Internal Affairs has no direct influence on these factors.
Corruption risk factors are conditions and reasons that may encourage (stimulate), cause or allow an official to perform acts in the performance of state or local self-government functions, which may lead to the commission of a corruption offense or an offense related to corruption.
Normative legal acts regulating the activity of the Ministry of Internal Affairs are analyzed to identify norms on the exercise of discretionary powers by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and norms that promote corruption or corruption-related offenses (vague definitions and language structures, legal conflicts, etc.).
