The Train Is Leaving The Station

By Jeffrey M. Kaplan and Rebecca Walker


The Anti-Corruption Compliance Program Benchmarking Survey that we are conducting with the FCPA Blog closes at noon EDT on July 12.


So, this is a “last call” for companies that would like to receive the benchmarking report on a complimentary basis by taking the survey. (Others – e.g., companies that have not taken the survey, as well as compliance service providers – will be able to purchase the report. Government agencies, NGO’s and full-time academics will be able receive the report at no cost.)

Prior posts on the FCPA Blog have described preliminary survey findings on such important topics as anti-corruption training for boards and for third parties, anti-corruption monitoring and program charters. And here are some other preliminary results:

  • Close to a third of respondents have stand-alone anti-corruption risk assessment processes (as opposed to addressing anti-corruption compliance within a broader risk assessment process).

  • A majority have a policy addressed to personal safety payments.

  • A large majority have anti-corruption compliance program integration procedures for M&A and JV activities.

In addition to providing final results on these topics, the report will cover a wide variety of other subjects such as anti-corruption procedures related to, e.g., providing gifts, entertainment and travel to government officials; various third-party-related practices; other training issues (both concerning live and web-based training); auditing practices; compliance incentives; self-assessment measures; compliance program oversight; and how senior managers can support anti-corruption programs.

We hope you’ll take the survey before it closes next week. For more information – as well as a link to take the survey – please click here.
