However, the organisation may choose to include broader anti-corruption provisions, particularly in the case of more complex or riskier transactions and higher-risk counterparties. This could include, for example, that the supplier`s contractual clause is intended to make it clear that by signing the supplier contract, they are committing to the company`s strict standards of corruption. This means not doing anything that could cause damage to the subscriber`s reputation, having the right procedures to prevent corruption, complying with all audits performed and much more. The above provisions apply in particular to the fight against corruption. However, other clauses, usually contained in contracts, may also have repercussions on the fight against corruption. This could include, for example, that no aid modality is free of fraud and corruption risks and that most donors have developed anti-corruption strategies to protect their funds from corruption. These include the commitment to a “no Bribe” policy, both internally and externally. With regard to development partners, the main pillars of these anti-corruption strategies generally cover three main dimensions, namely prevention, detection and an appropriate sanctions regime. The introduction of specific anti-corruption clauses in cooperation agreements is an important way to integrate corruption into the political dialogue with partners.

The organization could choose to meet this requirement by inserting a very simple clause in the contract obliging the counterparty to undertake not to participate in corrupt conduct. . . .
