Transparency International Report Finds That Poor Legislative Oversight of Defense Spending Increases Corruption Risk
Legislative bodies in most countries have “seriously insufficient controls” that lead to “high or critical corruption risk.” That is one of the findings of the Defence and Security Programme of Transparency International UK in its inaugural report on worldwide legislative oversight of defense expenditures. The September 2013 report provides insight into how a country’s political structures and processes affect corruption risk in that country’s defense industry, providing valuable information for companies that do business in these countries. This article highlights TI-UK’s key findings.
