A sum of $150.02 million has been allocated in the 2016/17 Estimates of Expenditure for the Caribbean Anti-Corruption Programme.

As outlined in the Estimates, now before the House of Representatives, the project is funded by the Department for International Development (DFID), to support the work of the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM).

Anticipated targets for the fiscal year include increasing the service vehicle fleet to facilitate prompt response to crime scenes; procuring forensic and investigative consumables; and increasing security services at the three INDECOM offices.

So far, the programme has procured additional equipment for investigative and forensic activities (cameras and tripods, NEAL recorder, digital voice recorders, go-kits, office furniture and supplies, shredders, forensic supplies, computers and information technology hardware/software).
