Christopher YukinsThis August/September, we invite you to join us at the third Procurement Anti-Corruption Training. Applications opened today and will close on 5 July.

The Procurement Anti-Corruption Training is specifically tailored to provide established public procurement practitioners with sound anti-corruption strategies and technical exposure to the vulnerabilities in the public procurement process. The programme runs from 24 August to 18 September, combining a week of lectures at IACA’s campus and distance learning.

Courses are delivered by Professor Christopher Yukins from the George Washington University Law School and Max Kaiser Aranda from the Center for Anti-Corruption Studies at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de Mexico, and complemented by online sessions with guest lecturers from international organizations, companies, and national administrations. The topics to be examined range from tendering and bidding processes to active enforcement and compliance with the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC).

By the end of the programme, participants will have prepared an analytical paper that explores an important anti-corruption strategy and recommends how it could be implemented in their respective countries.
