One of the oldest weapons in Transparency International’s anti-corruption arsenal is the Integrity Pact, designed specifically to tackle corruption in public procurement – one of the biggest areas of corruption risk for governments.

Infrastructure procurement faces particular risk of corruption due to projects’ complex contractual structure and size, frequent lack of transparency in the industry and government involvement, among other factors. Bribery, extortion and fraud can be difficult to detect and prevent. Corruption in this sector can lead to high prices, poor quality and inappropriate infrastructure solutions, which can damage the economy and endanger the public.

As focus on infrastructure investment intensifies, this guide seeks not only to update the Integrity Pact for today’s world, but for the first time to demonstrate how it can be applied to a specific sector – infrastructure. The publication includes an analysis of the infrastructure cycle and the different types of risks that can arise in the different phases.
