Integrity Pact - A powerful tool for clean bidding
(Source: Transparency International)
The Integrity Pact is a tool to help governments, businesses and civil society fight corruption in public contracting. It includes an agreement between a government or government department and all bidders for a public sector contract. The pact sets out rights and obligations to the effect that neither side will pay, offer, demand or accept bribes, or collude with competitors to obtain the contract, or while carrying it out. In addition, bidders are required to disclose all commissions and similar expenses paid by them to anybody in connection with the contract. If violations occur, sanctions apply.
The pact has shown itself to be adaptable to many legal settings and is flexible in its application.
The RESIST document assists companies in resisting extortion and solicitation in international transactions. It is meant as a training tool to create employee awareness and stimulate open discussions about realistic, ethical responses to dilemmas in the public procurement and project implementation process. Companies that participated in the design process of this tool have identified 7 scenarios, illustrating a range of possible solicitation situations during procurement processes. Two key issues are addressed in detail, in each scenario: How to prevent the dema+nd from being made and how to react if the demand is made.
