 INVITATION TO ACADEMIC AND PROCUREMENT INTEGRITY     WORKSHOPS FOR NIGERIAN UNIVERSITIES, POLYTECHNICS AND COLLEGES OF EDUCATION

 

Further to our earlier correspondence with Vice-Chancellors, Rectors and Provosts of Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education, we are pleased to confirm the convening of the workshops as detailed below.

 

BACKGROUND

The ICPC-TETFUND National Conference on Transparency, Accountability and Ethical Values in Tertiary Institutions for Sustainable Development was held on 20 – 21 May, 2014, with the Vice-Chancellors, Rectors and Provosts of Nigerian Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education along with their Principal Officers in attendance. The findings of the pilot ICPC/NUC University System Study and Review (USSR) of corruption in the university system were shared with the participants who agreed that the findings were applicable to other tertiary institutions including Polytechnics and Colleges of Education. The Conference therefore decided that the ICPC should conduct management level training for the leadership of Nigerian tertiary institutions in the key areas of infractions identified in the USSR report. It is in line with this that the ICPC, through its training arm, the Anti-Corruption Academy of Nigeria, is organizing the two sets of workshops on Academic Integrity and Entrenching Integrity in the Procurement Processes of Tertiary Institutions.

 

NOTES ON PARTICIPATION BY  FEDERAL, STATE AND PRIVATE TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS

  1. Attendance at the two workshops is mandatory for the target participants in all Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education currently enjoying the funding of TETFUND.
  2. Attendance at the Academic Integrity Workshop is mandatory for all private universities, polytechnics and colleges of education. This category of institutions are however encouraged to participate in the Procurement Integrity Workshop.
