Global Infrastructure Anti-Corruption Centre (GIACC)
GIACC has developed this on-line training module in order to help users:
- achieve a better understanding of corruption in the infrastructure sector,
- avoid corruption,
- identify corruption,
- deal with corruption appropriately if confronted with it.
This module can be used by individuals, and also by professional institutions and organisations as part of their formal training for their members and employees. It is aimed primarily at middle and senior management, particularly those involved in procurement, tendering, sales and marketing, design, project management, claims management, commercial management, financial management, legal, compliance, and internal audit.
The module focuses on the infrastructure sector. Therefore, corruption examples are based on examples from this sector. However, the principles would apply to all sectors, so people from other sectors would also benefit from this module.
This training can be used by organisations and individuals wherever they are located or working as, although the law will vary between jurisdictions, the module covers general principles and examples which have worldwide applicability.
The module is designed to be undertaken by individuals working by themselves on-line. However, an organisation could project the web-pages onto a screen, and use the whole or part of the module as part of a training workshop.
The course ‘Identifying and Avoiding Corruption in the Infrastructure Sector’ is available at this LINK.
