    The Ministerial Council approved on Wednesday the promotion of the Sponsorship Planwhich is addressed to organizations of the public, wider public and private sector, for the development and implementation of the ISO 37001 Standard, an internationally recognized Standard against bribery and corruption.

    As stated in an announcement by the Ministry of Justice, the Plan is part of the Recovery and Resilience Plan drawn up for the utilization of the resources allocated to Cyprus by the European Recovery and Resilience Mechanism.

    Specifically, an amount of 2 million euroswill be allocated as sponsorship to approximately 120 organizations of the public, wider public and private sector to cover the costs at a rate of up to 60% for the private sector, which concerns the market of consulting services as well as certification services, for the adoption of the specific Standard.

    For this purpose, a detailed guide to the Plan has been prepared and will be posted on the website of the Ministry of Justice and Public Order at www.mjpo.gov.cy.

    It defines the categories of beneficiary organizations, the terms of participation in the Plan, the maximum sponsorship amounts to cover part of the costs related to the purchase of consulting services as well as certification services, as well as all the criteria/conditions/specifications and the procedures that will be applied during the implementation of the Plan in question.

    As noted in the announcement, given that the prevention and fight against Corruption is very high on the Government's priorities, the Council of Ministers, invited the responsible Ministers to take all the necessary actions in order to promote the participation in the Grants Scheme, of specific Departments of the Public Service, which due to the nature and object of their work, it is considered right to apply the specific Standard.

    < p>Submission of applications for participation in the Grant Scheme begins immediately and all private sector bodies are invited to participate.
