The initiative aims to connect the access to investment and financing of municipalities with their presentation in Local Integrity System Index developed by Transparency International – Bulgaria. The Index evaluate the quality of local government through transparency, accountability, and anti-corruption efforts. The municipalities with better assessment of integrity should have priority access to investment and funding.

The Local Integrity System Index has been implemented by TI-Bulgaria since 2015 and has repeatedly demonstrated positive results in encouraging municipalities to good governance and limiting the corruption practices creating “friendly” competition and exchanging good practices between them.

Through the National anti corruption government strategy (2021-2027) and the implementation of appropriate incentives for investment and financing we hope to be an essential requirement for the implementation of international practices for good governance and to assist in overcoming corruption deficits at local level.
