Philippines Millennium Challenge Account Threshold Program Technical Assistance
USAID (2006 - 2009)
The Millennium Challenge Act of 2003 authorized assistance to countries that enter into Compacts with the United States to support policies and programs for achieving lasting economic growth and poverty reduction. The Millennium Challenge Account Philippines Threshold Program (PTP), administered by USAID, was developed to help the Government of the Philippines meet the eligibility requirements for Compact funding through a series of targeted anti-corruption activities. Program components included assisting the Office of the Ombudsman, which has the authority to investigate and prosecute high-level government officials in its own courts, and improving compliance and enforcement at the country's principal revenue collection agencies. As part of a consortium led by Management Systems International, Checchi provided long-term and short-term technical assistance to the Philippines Bureau of Customs to improve surveillance and information management, harmonize customs laws, and establish internal controls.

Philippines - Rule of Law Activity
USAID (2004 - 2007)
This USAID activity supported the efforts of the Government of the Philippines to improve public sector governance and strengthen the rule of law. The program's anti-corruption component focused on strengthening the capacity and effectiveness of the Office of the Ombudsman, the Bureau of Internal Revenue, the Civil Service Commission, the Anti-Money Laundering Council, and other implementing partners in combating corruption, while increasing public awareness of the effects of corruption and public participation in anti-corruption activities. The judicial reform component helped to implement the Supreme Court's Action Program for Judicial Reform in the areas of caseflow management, mediation, and judicial training. In collaboration with Management Systems International, Inc. (MSI), the prime contractor for this activity, Checchi provided long-term and short-term technical assistance for both components.
