image of Fighting Bribery in Public Procurement in Asia and the Pacific

Asian-Pacific countries have made significant efforts to address weaknesses in their procurement frameworks and practices. To support these efforts and to assist the ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative’s 28 member countries in strengthening their public-procurement mechanisms, the Initiative conducted a Regional Seminar on Fighting Bribery in Public Procurement in November 2007.  This volume compiles the experience that experts from Asian and Pacific countries – as well as beyond the region – shared during the seminar. It is addressed to policy makers and experts who wish to learn from other countries’ experiences in strengthening frameworks to protect public procurement from bribery and corruption risks.

Chapter 1 - Bribery risks in public procurement and challenges for reform

The fight against bribery and corruption ranks high on the reform agenda of Asian and Pacific countries. Public procurement is particularly exposed to corruption risks, given the high value and number of contracts and the broad discretion that is inherent to assessment of needs and priorities, and the quality of products and services.
