Who can benefit from GIACC’s resources
GIACC’s resources are provided for the assistance of all those involved in the infrastructure, construction and engineering sectors, including governments, project owners, funders, contractors, consulting engineering firms and suppliers of equipment, materials and services.
GIACC’s objective and policy
GIACC’s objective is to promote the implementation of anti-corruption measures as an integral part of government, corporate and project management.
GIACC’s policy is to promote change in the future. It does not blame any particular group of participants in the sector for the existence of corruption. It does not investigate or report on allegations of corruption. Nor will the names of any organisations or individuals accused or convicted of corruption be listed on this web-site. However, GIACC does provide links to the web-sites of numerous other organisations, and these other web-sites may contain these details.
GIACC has formed an international Advisory Council to advise on how GIACC can achieve its objective, and how the GIACC Resource Centre can be improved. For further information on the council and its members, see Advisory Council.
GIACC has formed anti-corruption alliances with several international, regional and national organisations. Under these alliances, GIACC and these organisations agree to work together in the infrastructure, construction and engineering sectors “to promote the implementation of anti-corruption measures as an integral part of government, corporate and project management”. For further information, see Alliances.
GIACC’s head office is located in England. However, GIACC operates internationally.
