CVC to Develop Integrity Index of 25 Organizations

Central Vigilance Commission has decided to go in for development of the Integrity Index for broader strategy and emphasis on preventive vigilance

  • The index will be based on benchmarking of internal processes and controls within an organisation as well as management of relationships and expectations of outside stakeholders.
  • CVC has adopted a research-based approach for creating an integrity index that various organizations can use to measure themselves 
  • The index will evolve with changing needs and with this view IIM-Ahmedabad has been engaged to develop the Integrity Index. 

The main objectives of the index are

  • Define what constitutes Integrity of Public Organizations
  • Identify the different factors of Integrity and their inter-linkages
  • Create an objective and reliable tool that can measure the performance of organizations along these above factors
  • Validate the findings over a period of time to improve upon the robustness of the tool that measures Integrity
  • Create an internal and external ecosystem that promotes working with Integrity where public organizations lead the way.
