Digital technologies and fight against corruption. NABU and Ministry of Digital Transformation sign memorandum

Identifying possible corruption risks when digitizing public services, introducing modern IT tools to increase the effectiveness of investigative actions, exchanging information on possible offenses, and monitoring the procurement of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for Ukraine's security needs — these are the key points of a memorandum signed by NABU Director Semen Kryvonos and Deputy Prime Minister for Innovation, Education, Science and Technology Development — Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov.

"Why is our cooperation important? First, it's about the development of institutions. Your expertise in artificial intelligence and software development creates new opportunities and tools for searching and analyzing information in NABU investigations. Secondly, it's about transparency. The war changes the priorities in public procurement, but its openness should stay unchanged," said NABU Director Semen Kryvonos.

According to him, NABU's role in this process is to help minimize corruption risks in public procurement by the Ministry of Digital Transformation.

"The team of the Ministry of Digital Transformation has built a transparent and user-friendly system in many areas. Thanks to digitalization, the state saves billions of hryvnias annually. We are currently working on major anti-corruption projects. Cooperation with NABU will help make them even more effective and speed up their implementation. After all, we have common goals — the fight against corruption and the minimization of all corruption risks," said Mykhailo Fedorov.
