USAID’s Kosovo Municipal Integrity (KMI) activity addresses long-standing challenges related to corruption and poor-quality service delivery by the Government of Kosovo by enhancing public financial management (PFM), with a focus on municipal procurement, and by reinforcing accountability mechanisms both within government and outside of government through civil society, the private sector, and media.

The four objectives of this activity are:

  1. National accountability agencies provide more effective and coordinated financial oversight.
  2. Governments increase use of good practices in budget planning, public procurement, and contract management.
  3. Government advances norms and practices that support internal audit and accountability.
  4. Civil society, media, and the private sector improve the integrity of public and private sector actors in public procurement.
