PACS Standard 14 forms part of GIACC’s Project Anti-Corruption System (PACS), which comprises 15 PACS Standards (see links at foot of this webpage).
[NOTE: The webpages on PACS Standards 1 to 15 are being updated between 1st and 30th September 2021, during which time the page content may not be complete, and there may be inconsistencies on these pages.]
Corruption will only be materially reduced if individuals believe that there is a real probability that corruption will be reported, investigated and penalised. If there is no penalty, or if individuals are aware that penalties are not enforced, then there will be no effective deterrent.
The relevant anti-corruption contractual commitments are contained in PACS Standard 4. These commitments include compliance with the Project Code of Conduct (PACS Standard 8).
