Contractor General Greg Christie - File
In an advertisement published in the Sunday Gleaner, the groups outlined recommendations on how the process of appointing the contractor general could be strengthened, calling for wider advertising of the post.
They also want representatives of civil society on the independent panel selecting the contractor general.
The groups say the process of appointment should go further to include parliamentary oversight and that the recommended candidate be presented to parliament for review.
The current contractor general Greg Christie is to step down in another month.
