THE TRANSPARENCY OF THE NATIONAL LAND SERVICE IS INCREASINGLY INCREASING
According to the latest sociological survey “Corruption Map of Lithuania 2021”, neither the country's residents nor the heads of business enterprises classify the National Land Service (NLS) as one of the most corrupt institutions. Comparing the results of this study with 2020, the results of a similar survey show that all target groups of respondents were significantly more positive about the activities of NLS.
The NLS will continue to work to improve the quality of the Office's administrative and public services, increase the transparency, openness, and accountability of its decisions and procedures, and further strengthen the NLS's resilience to corruption.
According to Laimonas Čiakas, the director of the NLS, the anti-corruption management system developed in accordance with the best global anti-corruption practice and meeting the international requirements of the ISO 37001 standard also helps to achieve ambitious goals. The National Land Service is the first budgetary institution in Lithuania to implement the above-mentioned anti-corruption management system.
The Helpline, which has been operating for many years, can also be of great help, as it can be used to report employee misconduct. Messages can be safely left by individuals on the NLS website or on the 24-hour telephone line no. 8 706 85555. The received information is constantly analyzed, and in case of violations, immediate measures are taken to eliminate them.
