Egyptian ACA cooperates with U.S. FBI to fight corruption

Thu, Dec. 28, 2017
CAIRO – 28 December 2017: The Egyptian Administrative Control Authority (ACA), the country's anti-corruption body, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, aiming to facilitate ongoing cooperation between the two agencies, according to the U.S. Embassy on Tuesday.

The Memorandum, which is responsible for investigating government corruption, was signed during a visit in Cairo by a delegation of senior FBI agents.

"The ACA has much in common with the FBI. We continue to be impressed with the ACA’s professional abilities and dedication to improving life for the average Egyptian," said Chargé d’Affaires of the U.S Embassy in Cairo Thomas H. Goldberger. "With this MoU, we look forward to closer cooperation in the future in our shared mission to fight against corruption.”

Over the last three years, the FBI and ACA have increased cooperation on anti-corruption investigations and training. The two agencies conducted joint training in 2016 at the ACA’s training center in Nasr City and an executive delegation of the ACA visited FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C. in August 2017.

The Administrative Control Authority is a governmental authority assigned to undertake monitoring operations on the performance of state employees and officials, as well as problems within the administrative, technical and financial systems that could hinder functionality of public organizations.
