This Directorate is duty-bound to prevent corruption offences and other improprieties in cooperation with relevant bodies. In order to do so, it studies the practices and working procedures in public offices and public enterprises, thereby ensuring the revision of methods of work, which may be conducive to corrupt practices. Upon the completion of the studies, the Directorate consults the subject public offices and enterprises and other stakeholders, puts forward corrective measures and recommendations and follows up their implementation.
The Directorate is also duty bound to conduct studies and researches on corruption so that other directorates and services of the Commission will be able to base their activities based on the outcome of such studies. It also offers consultancy service to other sectors and stakeholders on fighting and preventing corruption. The Directorate also conducts unanticipated and sudden examination of working procedures (during tendering, for example) in public offices and enterprises if it is tipped that a certain activity is being carried out in a way that is conducive to corruption because of lack of transparency and accountability. Such an intervention before the suspected corruption is committed is an important component of the Commission’s corruption prevention programme.
In sum, the Directorate is in charge of carrying out the following activities:
• conducting researches on corruption prevention,
• Distributing and dispatching findings of researches and studies,
• Studying and examining working procedures and processes in key service delivery institutions in a comprehensive manner and
• Consulting stakeholders on preventing and fighting corruption.

The research findings of the Department are believed to be very helpful in basing the Commission's activities on research findings, thereby raising its overall performance and efficiency.
