Transparency and Accountability as Tools for Promoting Integrity and Preventing Corruption in Procurement
OECD
This paper seeks to identify the way in which opportunities for corruption arise in the context of procurement. In looking at the government as a buyer, it considers the position of the procurement officer acting as agent on behalf of the elected government. Whilst the paper does not ignore the significant impact of corruption at the political level (either for the personal gain of politicians or for the benefit of political parties, for example), it concentrates on the opportunities this agency relationship offers to the procurement officer to deviate from his duty to act in the public interest. The paper investigates the divergence between the agent’s personal interest and that of the government and of the public and narrows down the opportunity for such deviations to the existence of informational asymmetries.

Good Governance for Public Procurement
OECD
This paper attempts to go to the arguments and the methods for procurement control at the institutional design and legislative levels. It is based on, and uses in part, source material from the organizations referred to in the paper obtained from referenced web sites on the Internet. National procurement systems are cited where they provide concrete examples to address the concepts discussed. Also, papers and discussions from the OECD Global Forum on Governance held 29/30 November 2004 in Paris are also cited in the paper. This Forum brought together participants from OECD and non-member countries to discuss methods, conditions and approaches to preventing, detecting and sanctioning corruption in public procurement.
