GIACC Alliances

GIACC has formed anti-corruption alliances with two international organisations, three regional organisations, and 22 national organisations in 16 countries. 

GIACC is pleased to announce a new alliance with the Association of Construction Health and Safety Management (ACHASM) in South Africa.  ACHASM is a non-profit advisory and representative organisation for those working in the construction health and safety (CHS) field.  It promotes the professional interest of CHS practitioners within the built environment.

The organisations with which GIACC has formed an alliance are entirely independent of GIACC, and are not part of the GIACC network.  These alliance are listed below.

Under these alliances, GIACC and the listed organisations agree as follows:

  • To work together in the infrastructure sector to promote the implementation of anti-corruption measures as an integral part of government, corporate and project management.
  • To agree on a case by case basis on projects on which they can co-operate so as to achieve the objective.

These alliances are informal.  No new organisation will be formed, and there will be no resulting legal or contractual obligations.  They are alliances to achieve a common objective for the public good.
