Marathon: Integrity Challenges for Private Procurement in Times of Crisis

According to the OECD, companies face significant disruptions in their supply chains in addition to Covid-19's impacts on operations. Disruptions on the supply and demand side exacerbate the socio-economic impacts of the crisis. Suppliers may no longer be able to continue their activities and fulfil their contracts. To respond to the economic risks faced by workers, contractors and suppliers, some companies have taken proactive steps and made promises to protect them from unemployment, wage cuts or order benefit reductions. Together, these responses are proving to be crucial in addressing the economic repercussions and risks of the crisis.

However, in some cases, these practices may also have their own unintended and undesirable effects. For example, urgent redirection of supply chains within short deadlines may mean speeding up due diligence, which in turn can result in the hiring of unskilled or disreputable suppliers, lack of control in quantities, corruption risks between private parties, and more. In times of crisis, characterised by unpredictability, urgency, the threat to health, and the needs for a non-routine organisational stance, special analytical planning, implementation capacity, and special legal considerations, the risks may be greater.

It is exactly in times of crisis, that emergency, exception, and flexibility measures can be incentivised which can open the door to compliance-related risks. Processes and good practices are some of the questions that this panel discussion will address: Integrity challenges for private procurement in times of crisis. We will share best practices and discuss about due dilligence, procurement process in times of crisis and corruption risk between privates.

In this one day Integrity Marathon we will have seven webinars where good practices and challenges on the same topic will be presented. Starting with the first webinar in Indonesia and ending with Latin America. Each session will take 90 minutes.

Who should attend?

This webinar series is open to all Compliance Officers, Business Executives, CEOs and anyone interested in compliance.
