Supervising and Monitoring Ukraine's Reconstruction Funds
Brussels and London Study tour participant 12 - 26 March, 2023
Denys embarked on the path of anti-corruption in 2014. With a group of friends, he founded a Civil Control Platform NGO. The organisation implements anti-corruption projects with, i.a., the EU, NED, and USAID focused, among others, on transparent procurement in public transport.
The organisation’s anti-corruption investigations led to the opening of 30 criminal cases and cooperation with the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine on 5 of them. Denys developed Public Procurement Guidelines that accumulated best practices at local government level.
SMURF aims to empower Ukraine’s civil society as the ‘second line of defence’ by providing the necessary expertise and tools to enhance the financial monitoring capabilities of Ukraine’s reconstruction funds.
