Anti-corruption and compliance professionals from around the world are on campus this week for the on-site portion of IACA’s sixth Procurement Anti-Corruption Training.

Lectures are being delivered by Christopher Yukins, Lynn David Research Professor in Government Procurement Law at the George Washington University Law School, and Max Kaiser Aranda, Anti-Corruption Director at the Mexican Institute for Competitiveness (IMCO), both of whom are members of IACA’s frequent visiting faculty. Additionally, Candice Welsch of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is giving a guest lecture.

The diverse participants are from Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Ethiopia, India, Ireland, Kuwait, Liberia, Rwanda, and Zambia. Topics include compliance programme development, corruption prevention strategies, and reverse auctions and e-procurement, among many others.

Procurement Anti-Corruption Training is a five-week, part-time programme that combines one week of on-site training at IACA with distance learning in participants’ home countries. Upon successful completion, participants are entitled to receive 6 ECTS academic credits.

The in-class portion of the programme is an opportunity for participants to present their draft course essays and receive valuable feedback before beginning the two-week follow-up phase and finalizing their papers.

The programme aims to reduce corruption in public procurement through combining theory with real-world insights. Participants also benefit from distinctive peer discussions and subsequent membership in IACA’s alumni network of over 1,700 anti-corruption and compliance professionals from 157 countries and jurisdictions.
