Corruption Watch seeks to appoint a service provider to conduct extensive and detailed research of South Africa’s whistle-blower mechanisms with a particular focus on the land sector. The service provider will be requested to:
Provide historical context of whistle-blowing culture in South Africa pre- and-post 1994.
Conduct an analysis determining the availability, functionality, effectiveness and responsiveness of South
Africa’s whistle-blower mechanisms with reference to laws, policies, processes and users experiences.
Through comparative analysis, illustrate how the South African context differs from other whistleblower systems regionally and globally.
With particular focus on land ownership and rights as well as the policing sector, assess whether a differentiated and specialised approach to whistle-blowing is required taking into account existing systems.
The research project will commence in August 2022 and must be finalised by 30 November 2022, with a final report due on 10 December 2022.
Interested applicants should submit a one-page motivation letter, a CV/company profile, a detailed work-plan, as well as the proposed budget by 29 July 2022 to Melusi Ncala at email@example.com.
The successful evaluation of applications will be based on an understanding of the subject matter, the experience and expertise of the service provider / consultant in relation to conducting effective research studies, the proposed research methodology and outline, a proven track record of work completed in anticorruption or related fields, timeframes, budgetary proposals as well as adherence to employment equity requirements.
Successful candidates will be contacted within two weeks after the closing date. If no contact is made, please consider your proposal unsuccessful.
Deadline: Friday, 29 July 2022
About Corruption Watch
Corruption Watch is a non-profit organisation launched in January 2012. We rely on the public to report corruption to us. We use the reports as an important source of information to fight corruption and hold leaders accountable for their actions.
Corruption Watch provides a platform for reporting corruption. Anyone can safely share what they experience and observe and can speak out against corruption. Our communication channels include our website, a WhatsApp number, social media, e-mail or post. The current Covid-19 lockdown unfortunately prevents us from taking walk-in reports at our office.
We investigate selected reports of alleged acts of corruption, in particular those cases that have the most serious impact on our society. For instance, these may be cases involving basic health or education services which affect the most disadvantaged South Africans. We hand our findings over to the relevant authorities to take further action, and we monitor the progress of each case. We work with mainstream and community media to make sure that corruption is fully exposed through our investigative work.
We gather and analyse information to identify patterns and hot spots of corruption. We prepare research reports on these hot spots to expose and find solutions to systemic corruption. Using our own communication platforms and the media, we share our findings with the public, like-minded non-governmental organisations and public sector bodies, all of which are undermined by corruption.
We build campaigns that mobilise people to take a stand against corruption. Our campaigns involve the public, community groups and other organisations such as trade unions.
