Rate this employer

The National Accountability Bureau NAB is Pakistan’s anti-corruption organization. It is charged with the responsibility of eradicating corruption through a holistic approach to awareness, prevention and enforcement. It operates under the National Accountability Ordinance 1999. Headquartered in Islamabad, it has seven regional offices in Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, Quetta, Rawalpindi, Multan and Sukkur. It takes cognizance of all offenses that fall under the National Ordinance on Accountability (NAO).

For the first three years, the focus of its functions was solely on the detection, investigation and prosecution of white-collar crime. Among the persecuted are politicians, officials and other citizens who have either committed gross abuses of power, or have robbed millions through corruption from the national treasury or resorted to other corrupt practices. In February 2002, NAB launched the National Anticorruption Strategy (NACS) project.

The NACS team conducted broad surveys, studied external models of international anti-corruption agencies and involved local stakeholders. All pillars of the National Integrity System have been studied in detail. After identifying the root causes of corruption in each pillar, a comprehensive strategy and detailed action plan was recommended. Breaking through traditional enforcement-based routines NACS has recommended a comprehensive process. Relevant changes have been made to the NAO and the NAB is now authorized to take on prevention and awareness in addition to its enforcement functions.
