The Azerbaijan National Integrity System is characterised by a strong executive branch, law enforcement and anti-corruption agencies. The other two branches of power that creates a system of checks and balances, namely, the judiciary and the legislature, are comparatively weak. The pillars that perform the watchdog functions (civil society, media, and political parties) are rated as the weakest links. Business is not very strong either. The institutions of Ombudsman and the Chamber of Accounts do not enjoy much independence, as they lack the power of enforcement, but they rate relatively high due to professional performance. The public sector was rated rather well, but delays in reforms in public procurement brought the overall score of the public service somewhat down.
