This Handbook for Curbing Corruption in Public Procurement is meant to be a basic introduction for all stakeholders to the challenge of overcoming corruption in the fi eld of public procurement. Our intention is to provide the readers with real world examples of successful actions that have been taken against corruption in a variety of Asian countries. The hope is that these experiences can be “translated” and “exported” to other situations and countries with similar success.

During 14–18 October 2019, experts from the International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR) conducted a 5-day training workshop in Jakarta, Indonesia as part of USAID CEGAH’s on-going programming with KPK (Corruption Eradication Commission), Office of the Attorney-General (AGO) and Ministry of Law and Human Rights relating to beneficial ownership.

In the context of ICAR's one-year multi-phase training programme in financial investigation and asset recovery for the Indonesian Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), funded by USAID/Management Systems International, ICAR has developed a series of new training modules jointly with the International Anti-Corruption Resource Centre (IACRC).
