UKROBORONPROM INVITES NGO "EIDOS CENTRE" TO STRAIGHT TALK

SC "UkrOboronProm" (UOP) offers NGO "Eidos Centre" to visit UOP enterprises, to join UOP social audit and to personal communication with top management of the company. This was reported by UOP Press service.

The Concern is peculiarly interested in a transparent work of Ukraine’s defense industry. UOP management is ready to severely punish those who are trying to work up questionable schemes inside the Concern. In this regard the State Concern is cooperating with law enforcement agencies, journalists and NGOs.

"But we are against politicization of these processes. We know that there is a hot political discourse between public activists and various political forces. But drawing "Ukroboronprom" into it is irresponsible to the country and its citizens, opposing Russian aggression and needing modern weapons at the front ", – stressed UOP representatives.

“UkrOboronProm” systematically fights corruption at its enterprises-participants. In 2014, in the framework of this process, anti-corruption program was launched. This program involves internal audit and engagement of external auditors, cooperation with state and international agencies, journalists and NGOs.

In 2 years the State Concern conducted 76 checks, issued 27 orders to eliminate violations, and initiated 25 functional audits. The inspections detected violations totaling for over 496 million UAH. 12 heads of UOP enterprises were dismissed and 29 officials – involved in corruption schemes – were brought to justice.

The State Concern cooperates with law-enforcement agencies. In 2, 5 years 158 materials on the results of internal audits were transferred to the law-enforcement agencies.
