Curbing Corruption in Public Procurement in Asia and the Pacific: Progress and Challenges in 25 Countries
The member countries of the ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia and the Pacific attach high priority to the fight against corruption in public procurement. In July 2004, member countries of the Initiative decided to dedicate the Initiative’s first thematic review to curbing corruption in public procurement.
The review seeks to assist governments in understanding better the corruption risks inherent in their countries’ institutional settings and procurement practices. It also strives to provide governments with an analytical framework to design rules, procedures, and policies to bolster transparency and integrity in public procurement.
This report was prepared by the Secretariat of the ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia and the Pacific. It describes the procurement systems as of May 2006.
