Pope launches transparency code for Vatican tenders

Legislation cuts risk of corruption says Francis

(ANSA) - Vatican City, June 1 - Pope Francis on Monday launched a new code for contracts and tenders in the Vatican aimed at introducing greater transparency.
    The new 98-article legislation assumes the principles of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption and replaces all other laws in the sector.
    The new norms "will enable us to significantly reduce the danger of corruption by those responsible for managing the Agencies and Bodies of the Holy See and the Vatican City State, Francis said.
    He said that fair competition and transparency will also enable "a better management of the resources that the Holy See runs in order to achieve the ends that are proper to the Church".
