This report reviewed innovations used to strengthen integrity in countries around the world, with a view to recommending one such innovation to strengthen Jamaica’s own integrity. Having assessed the corruption situation in Jamaica and examined what the existing anti-corruption framework allows, it was found that any innovation implemented in the country must address certain contextual criteria. As corruption was seen to be pervasive across all levels of society, any innovation would have to engage all members of society to effect real change. Additionally, during consultation with several anti-corruption institutions on the island, it was found that a major downfall of the innovations they currently use is a lack of data collection which is necessary to assess their effectiveness. Consequently, initiatives used in Jamaica should allow for clear target-setting and quantification of results. Furthermore, given the resource constraints, and in general, the economic challenges facing the country, innovations should be cost-effective and sustainable. Notably, Jamaicans have a strong inclination to technology and innovation and thus, the initiative should also be technologically inspired as this may spur on the uptake by the public.
