IACA – UNOPS Cooperation: Online Course on Fraud and Corruption Prevention in Public Procurement Launched

In cooperation with the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), IACA launched an online self-directed course offering practical introduction to identify the risks of corruption and fraud in public procurement and exploring how those risks could be minimized. The training analyzes the procurement process and provides the possible options of reducing corruption practices and conflict of interest in public procurement and strengthening ethical behaviors throughout the whole procurement process according to the international best practices. Examples of various procurement activities from around the globe are presented in the course, emphasizing that the strong risk management and anti-corruption monitoring systems ensure fairness in procurement.

The course is taught by IACA frequent lecturer, Professor Christopher Yukins of the George Washington University Law School, Washington, D.C., Lynn David Research Professor in Government Procurement Law, and Co-Director of the Government Procurement Law Program.

IACA-UNOPS course on Fraud and Corruption Prevention in Public Procurement is aimed primarily at professionals involved in developing or improving procurement systems. It can be useful to procurement officials, anti-corruption investigators, compliance officers and managers to enhance their understanding of corruption issues in procurement processes. In addition, anyone interested in international best practices in anti-corruption related to public procurement may also find this course beneficial.

The course is offered free of charge thanks to UNOPS and Prof. Yukins. For more information and registration, please click here.
