Compendium of Existing Practices on Managing the Risk of Corruption
December 2017

The Compendium of Existing Practices on Managing the Risk of Corruption has been prepared to support implementation of the Recommendation of the Council for Development Cooperation Actors on Managing the Risk of Corruption. In the Recommendation, the OECD Council outlines a range of policies and operations that constitute a strong and integrated approach to managing the risks of corruption in development cooperation.

This compendium of current practices aims to provide practical examples of existing tools and mechanisms for managing corruption risks that are already in use in the development agencies of OECD Members and non-Members that have adhered to the Recommendation. These concrete examples are intended to provide inspiration for the development cooperation agencies of Adherents and other organisations seeking to strengthen their approach to managing the risks of corruption. The selection of examples offered here is not comprehensive but it offers numerous illustrations of the kinds of policies, frameworks and management tools Adherents use to support their approach to managing the risks of corruption in development cooperation.

Key learnings
icon-risk
Resonating with the extended scope of the 2016 Recommendation, donors are adopting more holistic approaches to corruption risk management. Such approaches look beyond fiduciary risks, to consider the risks of the broader institutional and contextual environment.
icon-finding
Although many donors now have well-established corruption risk management strategies, there is a lack of a substantive evidence-base on the relevance and impact of existing approaches to managing the risks of corruption in development cooperation.
icon-audit
Taking stock of existing practices and gaps in implementing the 2016 Recommendation helps to identify areas of further work to enhance its relevance and impact. Potential areas include audit and investigation, joint donor responses, and corruption risk identification, assessment and management.
