The 4 Pillar Approach to Preventing Procurement Fraud & Corruption

The Ethics Leaders Approach to Identify and Prevent Corruption

If you’ve been the victim of procurement fraud, bribery or corruption, or you think you could be targeted again and don’t know how to prevent it, do you believe your anti-corruption measures aren’t strong enough but are unclear on additional measures that should be introduced or are you being told that organisation fraud risk is approximately 5% of revenue any yet you have identified less that 01.% Then understanding the typologies of corruption and it’s links to fraud and other financial crime and creating your approach to identify and prevent future corruption risk is essential.

The mistakes in Responding to Corruption, Why it Can be Overwhelming

In addition to the many methods in which corruption, fraud and financial crime can be committed against an organisation, recognising where you can be targeted within an organisations procurement, payment systems and projects can be overwhelming. Who within your organisation can influence and manipulate your procurement or anti-corruption systems, so designing your approach is essential.

Leader that don't recognise how education and awareness at the core of their approach won't be able to identify the cost and impact to their organisation. Are the wrong data sources being used to identify procurement fraud and corruption risk, do leaders believe that introducing audit services is enough to mitigate risk or do they follow what other organisations are doing without understanding the true level of risk and where you are being targeted.

So Make It Simple

Use Our 4 Pillars to Build Your Anti-Corruption Framework


Reduce your risk and get results faster

Our solution has been developed around an organisation and national anti-corruption and counter procurement fraud framework that takes a step by step approach in identifying corruption and mitigating future risk. Follow these steps and let the data drive your anti-corruption measures.


Driver of ethics and leadership

Training and mentoring in this approach with anti-corruption leaders and implementers can be used to support and build anti-corruption relaltionships, engagement, community and culture building.


Anti-Corruption best practice

Introduction of anti-corruption framework training and mentoring as a national response to corruption risk can have many positive outcomes including the central coordination and measurement of organisation performance, sharing best practice and building an anti-corruption community and culture that creates an increased opportunity to collect and share information on corruption risks and trends.

Having worked in the procurement fraud and anti-corruption environment for 25 years in a number of roles that included as Head of an anti-corruption unit, Head of a money laundering team and as Head of an intelligence capability, one of the areas of learning particularly working alongside a prevention team is that the greatest value for any organisation in reducing financial loss is a prevention approach.


Recognising the value of education and engagement with staff and internal stakeholders that there is a greater opportunity to identify and prevent risk. Not only is there reduced cost to this approach but also it has greater impact in preventing future corruption and fraud through engagement and information sharing. 

One of the challenges working in both the public sector and private sector is that professionals working within procurement and associated roles such as finance, quality assurance, asset management, compliance, risk and project management is that they don’t recognise the typologies of procurement fraud and corruption and how it impacts their business operations.

Having provided training in various sectors and countries globally on how to identify procurement fraud and corruption and what data sources to use in identifying these risks is an important part of building an organisations response to risk.

How to identify the extent of corruption risk

It is only through this increased knowledge that organisations fully understand the various risks and areas where they can be targeted through fraud and corruption.

Leaders and professionals that recognise the value in this training and assessing these new areas of risk have been able to introduce or enhance internal capabilities to prevent significant financial loss or where they have been the target of bribery or procurement fraud have introduced data management, compliance capabilities or field compliance teams to assess fraud and corruption risk.
