Business Integrity Challenge Fund

This £250,000 fund will support business-focused Collective Action Initiatives (CAIs) which aim to reduce corruption or promote human rights to improve the investment climate in emerging markets and developing countries.

In particular the fund will support CAIs that aim to ensure that:

  • More businesses have the capacity to act with integrity
  • More businesses engage with governments on integrity issues
  • More businesses view acting with integrity as a commercial advantage

After a competitive funding process which received over 20 applications, we are working to implement projects with three organisations across Africa:

CoST Uganda:

Using the Open Contracting for Infrastructure Data Standard, to build trust between government and private sector practitioners and:

  1. Increase disclosed data across projects in Uganda.
  2. Increase competition in doing business with government agencies.
  3. Strengthen transparency in procurement processes of infrastructure projects.
     

The Ethics Institute:

Supporting the Ethically Aware Supplier Induction programme which provides high-quality, standardised, practical and engaging training on doing business ethically, aimed specifically at small and medium enterprises in the supply chain of large organisations.

The Ghana Integrity Initiative:

Increasing dialogue between the state and businesses in Ghana through 10 Services Delivery Charters creating greater transparency and understanding for businesses working with the public sector.
