Using taxpayers’ money responsibly and protecting it against corruption are top priorities. Corruption involves high risks of criminal prosecution for individuals and immense reputational risks for companies. The mere suggestion of corruption can be damaging. As awareness of corruption rises among policy-makers and civil society, the range of commissioning parties and clients broadens, and commissions and projects grow more and more complex, GIZ is increasingly called upon to reinforce its commitment to ensure that it acts with integrity, complies with the rules, and actively combats corruption. For this reason, our framework conditions are designed to prevent corruption.
