The Office of the Director of Public Officers’ Declarations (Directorate) is an independent governance public institution within the Malawi Government established in 2014 under Section 6(1) of the Public Officers (Declaration of Assets, Liabilities and Business Interests) Act. The Act provides legal and institutional framework for prescribed public officers to declare their assets, liabilities and business interests upon assuming office. In this regard, under the said Act, the Directorate is mandated to administer and manage the public officers’ declaration regime in order to promote public confidence in the public service. Furthermore, the declaration system acts as one of the tools for preventing, deterring and detecting illicit self-enrichment, abuse of office and conflict of interest by public officers, in order to curtail corruption. To achieve these goals, the Directorate counts on and cherishes the team effort and work ethic of a highly qualified, talented, astute brave, professional, innovative, motivated and transformational staff complement that adheres to the strictest ethical standards.
