Project Summary

The project will look at the key role that compliance verification methods play in assessing companies’ adherence to their anti-corruption programs.

The overarching, long-term goal of this project is to improve credibility of corporate compliance programs. Achieving this will help increase public confidence and enhance credibility with investors, rating agencies, financial institutions, export credit agencies and government procurement agencies, which increasingly expect corporations to demonstrate effective compliance programs. This project will assess the strengths and weaknesses of the most commonly used methods of compliance verification and will develop recommendations for companies when considering anti-corruption compliance verification.

  • Reviewing, assessing and reporting on the efficacy of current approaches to compliance verification
  • Creating awareness and better understanding of the verification methods; and
  • Promoting broad acceptance of the relative merits of the methods and findings

This project will be supported by Michael Hershman, Mark Mendelsohn and Fritz Heimann.
