Good governance, Ethics, accountability and combatting corruption

Corruption undermines the trust that exists between governments and citizens and is bad for business. Our experts work with public sector institutions to improve their capacity to enforce standards of ethics and conduct investigations related to allegations of corruption and fraud. We support governments and engage public leaders to prevent conflict of interest, strengthen discipline management and protect disclosure systems. By institutionalizing ethical conduct, we improve the efficiency of government spending and create a better environment for doing business.
