Bribery and Corruption Risk Assessment

To prevent corruption an organisation needs to have a clear understanding of the bribery and corruption risks that it faces and must develop effective systems, procedures and controls for minimising or mitigating risk exposures.

Being able to identify, assess, mitigate and manage bribery and corruption risks is a critical business function which is particularly important for complex, international businesses that engage third party suppliers, sales agents or other intermediaries within their supply chains.

Organisations often find it a significant challenge to develop, implement and maintain a risk management framework to assess, evaluate and treat bribery and corruption risks, in a structured and transparent way, which is what the Bribery and Corruption Risk Assessment has been purposefully designed to do.

What is the Bribery and Corruption Risk Assessment Platform?

The Bribery and Corruption Risk Assessment platform helps organisations to identify, assess, mitigate and manage bribery and corruption risks across different dimensions and over 300 different risk factors by providing a standardised process for performing risk assessments on the core requirements of the Anti-Bribery and Corruption program and provides a graphical depiction of a risk matrix, depicting the areas of higher risk, highlighting focus areas. This helps organisations in designing, implementing and maintaining robust policies, procedures, systems and controls to reduce these risks.

Solution Overview

The Bribery and Corruption Risk Assessment platform contains over 300 different risk factors, organised across different risk categories:
