International Anti-Corruption Resource Center attacks corruption around the worldIACRC is a non-profit organization (501(c)(3)) headquartered in Washington, DC.

Our mission is to:

  • Attack corruption around the world by training investigators, auditors and project personnel on how to detect, investigate and prove all kinds of procurement fraud schemes.
  • Enhance the capability of local law enforcement to prosecute corrupt officials whose bribery demands siphon the life out of crucial development and humanitarian projects.

In response to anti-bribery legislation such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the United Kingdom Bribery Act, major international business companies have adopted compliance regimes and policies which mandate integrity and forbid bribery in the pursuit of business. Unfortunately, these good deeds are rarely rewarded. There remain dishonest companies competing for major procurement projects that are still willing to pay bribes to obtain business, knowing that the risk of detection and prosecution remains low. A significant and unfair competitive advantage for companies willing to pay bribes will persist so long as competition for business is not conducted on a level playing field

IACRC is committed to restoring that level playing field by training local law enforcement personnel to provide them with the ability to pursue and remove officials who demand bribes.
