Budapest, August 5 (MTI) – The State Audit Office is preparing anti-corruption guidelines in preparation for Budapest’s bid to host the 2024 Olympics, the office said on Friday.
The guidelines will list the necessary controls to be applied in various phases of large investment projects, with special emphasis on preventing or reducing corruption risks in the case of Olympics developments. Decision-makers will be given help on identifying the risks and implementing an integrity control system that can prevent or reduce them, the office said in a statement.
The Audit Office has been asked to prepare the guidelines under a parliamentary decision to support Budapest’s bid to host the 33rd Summer Olympics and 17th Paralympics in 2024.
In May, the office submitted its initial study on integrity risks during large investment projects and the controls necessary to handle them.
