International Federation of Consulting Engineers

  • Session 10: Integrity/Corruption

  • Dr. Jorge Díaz Padilla



International federation of consulting engineers

Framework

  • As project delivery turns more complex, sustainability, quality and integrity become critical.

  • Document harmonisation and transparency are solid steps to combat corruption.

  • However, sustainable solutions need to involve all stakeholders.

    The FIDIC Integrity Management System

    FIDIC believes that a scalable approach is the roadmap for the future of integrity systems and that alternatives for the design of an IMS should take into account the size, capacity and specific needs of each company.

    The FIDIC Integrity Management System

    Part I of the FIMS Guidelines (2011)refers to a set of integrity management policies and principles that should be adopted by all firms.


    International federation of consulting engineers

    The FIDIC Integrity Management System

    • Zero tolerance toward bribery, extortion, coercion, fraud, collusion and conflicts of interest.

  • Member firms should formulate and subscribe to an internal “Code of Conduct”.

  • Member firms should develop and implement their own FIMS.

    The FIDIC Integrity Management System

    Part II of the FIMS Guidelines (draft)explores various ways that may be used to develop an Integrity Management System.

    Procedures


    International federation of consulting engineers

    The FIDIC Integrity Management System

    The scope and details of the FIMS procedures will vary from company to company and must be tailored to the specific needs of each firm.

    Implementing a FIMS

    The particular details of a FIDIC Integrity Management System (FIMS) will vary for every company but the general structure will be the same.


    International federation of consulting engineers

    Implementing a FIMS

    The firm will have to identify the critical projects with high potential corruption risk that need to be monitored depending on: (1) geographical coverage; (2) perceived corruption; (3) type of client; (4) type of contract; (5) subcontractors, etc.

    The FIDIC Integrity Management System

    “FIMS light” might be quite appropriate for small to medium size firms that deliver projects in a low risk environment.


    International federation of consulting engineers

    The FIDIC Integrity Management System

    “FIMS comprehensive” might be designed to be equivalent to a full flown FCPA or Bribery Act Compliance System.

    The Rep Agreement

    The FIDIC “Model Representative Agreement” (2012) is designed for firms who engage an “agent” to develop business or provide assistance in a foreign country.


    International federation of consulting engineers

    The Rep Agreement

    Clause 15 Anti-Corruption

    Sub-Clause 15.1

    (a) The Representative hereby represents, warrants and covenants that it will not participate, directly or indirectly, in bribery, extortion, fraud, deception, collusion, cartels, abuse of power, embezzlement, trading in influence, money laundering, or any other criminal activity.

    The MDB Harmonised Contract

    Clause 15.2 of the “MDB Harmonised Contract” (2011) entitles the Employer to terminate the Contract if the Contractor:

    The MDB Harmonised Contract

    (f) gives or offers to give to any person any bribe, gift, gratuity, commission or other thing of value, as an inducement or reward for: (i) doing or forbearing to do any action in relation to the Contract, or (ii) for showing or forbearing to show favour or disfavour to any person in relation to the Contract.


    International federation of consulting engineers

    The MDB Harmonised Contract

    Sub-Clause 15.6

    Corrupt or Fraudulent Practices

    If the Employer determines, based on reasonable evidence, that the Contractor has engaged in corrupt, fraudulent, collusive or coercive practices, in competing for or in executing the Contract, the Employer may terminate the Contract.

    The MDB Harmonised Contract

    Sub-Clause 15.6

    Corrupt or Fraudulent Practices

    Reciprocity and the role of “Dispute Boards” need to be reviewed by the MDBs and taken into account.

    Framework

    The Humboldt-Viadrina School of Governance recently (2012) applied a global survey on anti-corruption incentives and sanctions to a stakeholder group from business, the public sector and members of civil society.


    International federation of consulting engineers

    The Humboldt-Viadrina Survey

    Key finding:

    “92% of respondents agreed that preferential treatment should be applied to companies that demonstrate adherence to anti-corruption principles” (e.g. grant preferred supplier status).


    International federation of consulting engineers

    The Humboldt-Viadrina Survey

    Key finding:

    “73% of respondents agreed that independent third-party assurance of a business’ anti-corruption program is needed to grant incentives”.
