The project aims to prevent corruption and create fair market conditions in Spain by improving corporate governance in the private sector and enhancing transparency in public services and procurement. The expected impact of this project is an improvement in quality of the corporate governance system. Throughout implementation, the project will look at:
- Improving corporate governance in target companies, through the design and implementation of a Compliance and Ethics Program, including a model report, based on the obligations and recommendations set out in European and Spanish legislation
- Promoting integrity in public contracting through "integrity pacts" as a way to minimize corruption in public procurement, starting with a pilot project relating to certain tenders of the Spanish Central Public procurement system
- Fostering transparency in the delivery and management of contracted public services through the implementation of the new Transparency Law
Description of Integrity Partner
Transparency International España is the Spanish national chapter of the global Transparency International Movement of non-governmental organizations universally devoted to combating corruption. The Movement brings civil society, private sector and governments together and forms a global coalition against corruption.
The work of Transparency International España is in line with the overall Transparency International strategy and is based on the assumption that transparency constitutes a major goal of modern society. It is a powerful tool for fighting both political and corporate corruption and thereby also inherently linked to the “Right to know” of citizens in Spain.
Transparency International España is an organization committed to promoting and increasing the level of information and openness of information of the various Spanish public institutions, fighting all types of corruption, generating knowledge and promoting good practices in the public and private sectors.
