Event Details

Theft, fraud and corruption in public and private sector procurement extend well beyond the financial loss; it affects an organization’s reputation and credibility and can hamper and delay implementation of critically needed programs and projects. Corruption increases cost and ultimately reduces competitiveness. Very often organizations are caught trying to stop the provable “horse that has already bolted the stable”. This lack of compliance with the law and acceptable rules of conduct is due in large measure to the absence of proper codes of conduct coupled with inadequate or no training in detection and avoidance for those mandated to monitor and oversee procurement transactions.
