In February 2018, Checchi Consulting was awarded a four-year contract by USAID/Serbia to implement the Government Accountability Initiative. The overall goal of the Government Accountability Initiative is to strengthen the capacities of key Serbian stakeholders to increase government accountability at the national and local levels. At the national level, Checchi will provide technical assistance to the Anti-Corruption Agency and the State Audit Institution to strengthen the monitoring of public officials and government performance. In addition, the company will assist anti-corruption court units in managing corruption cases and help establish a system for the collection of unified statistics on corruption. At the local level, Checchi will provide technical assistance to help local governments operate in a more transparent and responsive manner, as well as support the development and implementation of local anti-corruption plans.
