IACRC is dedicated to providing practical, on-site and tailored instruction to local law enforcement personnel — including investigators, auditors and prosecutors — as well as to international aid agency personnel and local and international project and procurement staff.
All instruction is designed to enhance the capability to detect, prove and prevent fraud and corruption in major development and humanitarian projects throughout the world.
All our instruction incorporates case studies integrating local laws and investigation measures. IACRC provides access to other resources, including software, to improve the effectiveness of our training. We also provide on-going consulting services to promote the implementation of our instruction.
No country can induce reputable companies to compete without providing a level playing field — which begins with law enforcement personnel who are sufficiently trained and prepared for the task to prosecute corrupt officials who demand bribes to enrich themselves.
IACRC engages in four ways in order to promote a level playing field.
IACRC AROUND THE WORLD
In recent years, IACRC has created and conducted many training programs and often presents training techniques and seminars to investigators who battle corruption all over the world. For example:
- In 2013, IACRC participated in an anti-corruption conference in Prague sponsored by the CEELI Institute.
- In 2013 and 2014, IACRC teamed with the International Center for Asset Recovery (ICAR), headquartered in
Basel, Switzerland, to develop and present detailed anti-corruption training in Indonesia. The project included translating one of IACRC’s training manuals into the Indonesian language.
- In 2014 and 2015, IACRC made a series of presentations emphasizing its focus on the “demand” side of corruption — the public officials who extort bribes — to visiting delegations of Chinese prosecutors and other anti-corruption officials.
- IACRC participated in OECD’s 2014 Global Forum on Corruption, located in Paris, and in the 2015 Baltic Competition Conference in Riga, Latvia. On both occasions we delivered well-received presentations on the links between corruption and competition abuses, such as bid rigging and collusion on public works projects.
- In 2015, IACRC again worked with ICAR to jointly design a training program and personally train anti-corruption personnel in Kuwait.
