Graft busting


It is good to see the issues surrounding corruption being given a good airing.

Turning a blind eye to corruption is no longer an option. However, many of the measures to combat corruption are missing the mark because they lack input from the private sector, which has to deal with this problem on a daily basis.

The desire of some UK consultants and contractors to promote practical measures to reduce corruption was the motivation for the formation of the UK Anti-Corruption Forum (ACF).

The CF as eveloped its own action plan to reduce corruption and has had talks with the UK government over how to combat the problem.

Gradually more private sector individuals, companies and industry bodies are joining the ACF. Perhaps the tide is turning. If anyone is interested, I would be happy to provide more information or put them in contact with the organisation.
